MAYOR'S MESSAGE - Collaborating for our Future

Published On 09 July 2020 at 05:00 PM

Council is proud to be an active partner in the Greater Sydney Commission's Collaboration Area Place Strategy and the vision for the ANSTO Innovation Precinct. A broad range of jobs will be created in and around the Innovation Precinct that will see huge benefits in growing local employment and economic activity. Two thirds of our workforce leaves Sutherland Shire because there are not enough local jobs to suit their skills and this places pressure on roads and public transport that could be alleviated if more residents could work locally. The Innovation Precinct will harness the potential of the world leading research and infrastructure within ANSTO and return an enormous dividend that will extend well beyond Sutherland Shire. That’s why Council has the Innovation Precinct as a feature in its Economic Development Strategy and draft Local Strategic Planning Statement, and has been an active partner in the Collaboration Area process.
