Breen Resources (Breen) is planning the next stage of the delivery of the Marang Parklands in Kurnell, along with changes to its resource recovery facility. We invite you to find out more about what’s proposed and provide feedback.
Breen is converting 42 hectares of land into community open space. The proposal include the rehabilitation and creation of new parkland, with walking tracks, parking, lookouts and other amenities.
The proposal also includes the relocation of Breen’s current operations to the eastern end of the site, with a new access point off the Lindum Rd roundabout. This new facility will employ modern technology and partially enclosed operations, to minimise dust and noise on the surrounding environment while redirecting construction waste from landfill to create products that can be used in the civil and landscape sectors.
This proposal does not replace existing agreements made with Sutherland Shire Council to build new sports fields, these will be delivered over the coming years.
Frequently asked questions
Why aren’t you doing in-person consultation?
Due to current NSW Government COVID-19 guidelines which discourage larger gatherings, consultation will be hosted online. The Department of Planning, Industry and Environment is supporting online engagement for developers and local councils at this time.
Breen is also undertaking a direct consultation process with some community groups and adjoining landowners.
If you have any other questions or comments please contact us:
Breen’s plans for the parklands are not yet finalised, and we are seeking input from people with an interest in the site ahead of submitting a development application to the Department of Planning, Industry and Environment. We are keen to hear feedback from anyone with an interest in the proposal, and will attempt to address that feedback as we continue to finalise the plans.
The final plans will be available to view when the DPIE exhibits them.
To help you understand the proposal, some images of the early concepts are available for download on this page, please see the images to the right/below.
When will construction start?
The project is still in the planning and design process. After consultation and further design, the proposal will be submitted the Department of Planning, Industry and Environment. Officers in the Department will assess and exhibit the final plans. The community will be notified of DPIE’s exhibition when it commences. If the plans are approved, construction is expected to commence in late 2021.
What has happened to the original plans for the parklands?
Breen has already remediated and constructed one soccer field, two hockey fields, a skate park, car park and other amenities as part of Marang Parklands Stage One delivery. These facilities have quickly become favourite places to visit for the clubs and families that use them. We intend to deliver the future stages of the Marang Parklands as soon as is practical. The remaining (already approved) stages include seven additional sports fields and associated amenities.
This proposal does not replace the existing agreements with Sutherland Shire Council. It is for a significantly enhanced design and delivery of the 42 hectares of parkland and environmental reserves designated in the Voluntary Planning Agreement with Council, and for the relocation of the existing resource recovery operations to a new, modern facility adjacent to Lindum Road, at the eastern end of our site.
