The Kurnell Peninsula is undergoing remarkable transformation, from a former industrial precinct to one which is recognised for its outstanding environmental, cultural, and recreational values.

The Kurnell Peninsula Master Plan – Bidhiinja (bid-hin-jar) Beach will play a crucial role in reimagining the peninsula, revitalising a 210-ha sand quarry into a mixed-use community.

With a cultural and landscape led approach, the master plan weaves together the rich cultural history of the peninsula whilst unlocking the potential for jobs and housing. The master plan will deliver over 4,300 new and diverse homes. A new town centre will be created, supported by hotels, tourism and cultural ventures, all designed to provide employment opportunities for the evolving and expanding community of the Sutherland Shire. This new precinct will deliver 8 new parks and local open space areas, new walking trails and will transform a 2km beach front into a publicly accessible area.

Urbis has been working with the client to unlock the sites potential through LEP amendments and a site specific DCP, supported by an open space and ecological and cultural strategy. The process has involved extensive Government and stakeholder input to deliver the highest quality place-based outcome for future residents, workers, and visitors.

Duncan McComb, CEO of Besmaw Pty Ltd, had the below to say:

Bidhiinja (bid-hin-jar) Beach will be a place that celebrates its rich cultural heritage, regenerates the natural ecology, and provides sustainable homes and jobs for current and future generations.
