Job Creation

ANSTO Innovation Precinct

ANSTO's vision of a Graduate Centre, Innovation Centre and an Industrial Park [the Precinct] at their Lucas Heights facility will provide a symbiotic ecosystem for scientists of the future and innovative industry leading to significant economic growth and high value jobs across Sydney's south.  A brochure describing the components of the precinct can be viewed here.


Sutherland: The CBD for Southern Sydney

Sutherland is the Shire's Administrative Centre and is a major transport hub.  Developments within the Shire particularly at Kurnell and Lucas Height make Sutherland more appropriate to be the CBD for Southern Sydney.
Proposals to make Sutherland the Shire's Commercial Centre have been underway for some time.  Discussions with interested parties should produce a concept plan shortly.





Shire Accommodation

A concept plan has been developed by local architects for a Hotel to be built over the southern end of Cronulla Station.  Discussions are underway with potential commercial developers and relevant State Government Authorities.

Shuttle Bus Trials

The NSW Department of Transport appointed Transdev to undertake shuttle bus trials in the Sutherland Shire for a 2 year period.  5 areas in the Shire  have been selected and the trials commenced on November 20th 2017. Details of the trial can be viewed here

Shire Infrastructure priorities

ShireBiz in conjunction with local businesses and the Chambers of Commerce has developed a list of infrastructure projects that the Shire needs to support Economic Development.  These will be forwarded to the appropriate government bodies. A submission has recently been made to the Greater Sydney Commission on the Shire's infrastructure needs.
