About the project

In 2022, Property and Development NSW launched an expressions of interest (EOI) campaign to divest the Intertrade site (previously part of the former BHP Steelworks site) at 99 Selwyn Street, Mayfield.

The three-stage divestment process aimed to identify the best opportunities to transform the site for innovative new uses, which could include advanced manufacturing, cleantech and green energy, or defence industries, that will deliver economic benefits to Newcastle and the Hunter region, in particular job growth and investment.

Proposals were evaluated against strict criteria by a panel comprising representatives from multiple government agencies.

The process closed in July 2023 with no successful proponent identified. The site will now be subject to the NSW Government's pause on the sale of government-owned land.


Property and Development NSW owns the Intertrade site which is located adjacent to Newcastle Harbour in Mayfield and was part of the former BHP Steelworks site. The site comprises an area of approximately 52 hectares and is largely unimproved, except for some existing structures (some of which have heritage value) and roads and sewerage infrastructure.

The site has been extensively remediated in accordance with a voluntary management plan regulated by the NSW Environment Protection Authority (EPA) under the Contaminated Land Management Act 1997.
