PEDI believes that the optimisation of the PHA can result in a range of benefits for new business opportunities and increased employment for the local community as well as for the City. Proper management of this asset can transform the PHA into a vibrant farming node that will see land vacancies being taken up, unproductive land becoming productive, and the creation of the potential new businesses and jobs.
