ShireBiz Quarterly Meeting 30th March 2017

Dr Tim Boyle addresses ShireBiz

ANSTO’s vision of a Graduate Centre, Innovation Centre & 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 & high value jobs across Sydney’s south, the Illawarra & Southwest Sydney. ShireBiz shares this vision.

ShireBiz comprises leaders from the public & private sectors providing their experience & skills pro bono to grow economic activity in Sydney’s south generally, especially within Sutherland Shire. We have been an active contributor to the ANSTO Innovation precinct concept since its inception in 2013.

ANSTO has exclusive management of Australia’s nuclear infrastructure, enabling a competitive advantage in materials science, health & environment focused industry participants, in the Precinct.

The ANSTO facility at Lucas Heights is an ideal strategic & geographic position to bring science & industry together. Lucas Heights is already a science precinct for ANSTO, CSIRO & the University of Wollongong.

Once fully established the Precinct will provide a beacon to attract more industry to Lucas Heights & its environs, where there is ample land for expansion, enabling industry based competitive clusters to be formed.

Alan Tooth [ShireBiz] thanks Dr Tim Boyle

The Precinct will require more infrastructure in the form of roads & public transport, a need that will grow substantially over time & will supplement infrastructure for the general community. It will also enable the development of lands between Liverpool, East Hills & Lucas Heights.
