Lucas Heights Advanced Manufacturing Centre

Negotiations have been underway for more than 3 years with ANSTO, Universities and Manufacturers about the establishment of an advanced manufacturing technology park in the Lucas Heights area.


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

Discussions are being undertaken with local bodies re shuttle buses in a trial(s).  This project has arisen from the responses to the recent survey of rail commuters.  Our initiative has the support of SSC and the NRMA.
