BHP has commenced planning and preparation for the next smelter campaign maintenance program scheduled for April 2021. BHP is planning a new permanent accommodation village for 1,500 people to support the program.  BHP has identified the site known as Roxby Downs West as its preferred location for the potential village.  The site was selected for its potential to expand. 

The preferred site contains a portion of land which is classified as Community Land – specifically CT5806/888 (Allotment 1396 Deposited Plan 55074).  This allotment is located on Olympic Way between the Roxby Downs race course and Roxby Downs golf course. This portion of land is subject to a licence held by the Roxby Downs Golf Club.  The land is currently not part of the 18 hole golf course.
