Population growth and the Australia-wide trend toward smaller lots and apartment living is generating demand for self-storage space. Customers are seeking everything from lockers to garages, and the KeepSafe brand is offering a premium product.


In 2022, CLE steered through a Design Review process and obtained development approval for a six-level, 900-unit self-storage facility in Joondalup, responding to an under-supply of self-storage space in the North-West corridor. Self-storage facilities are not well addressed by the planning framework, being similar to warehouses in form but not appearance or function, and CLE worked closely with the local government to establish a mutual understanding.

Acting for the Gnowangerup-based Auspan Group, CLE has recently obtained development approvals for a vehicle fabrication facility in Dalwallinu for Shermac, new space for Katanning H Hardware, a storage facility for an electrical business in Katanning, and a storage facility for a viticulturalist in Broome. These initiatives support regional enterprise and employment and contribute to greater self-sufficiency for the regions and Western Australia as a whole.
