Within the Ashburton North Strategic Industrial Area (ANSIA) are two multi-user General Industrial Areas (GIAs) totalling 200 hectares.

The Eastern GIA and Western GIA provide appropriate locations to accommodate support services to the ANSIA, which will help foster economic growth of the region and the State, while minimising the impact on Onslow.

The Eastern GIA will be the first developed, and a detailed outline is available in the Shire of Ashburton’s General Industrial Area – Eastern Portion Outline Development Plan
