Consultation has concluded


Council invites you to have your say on a Planning Proposal to amend Canterbury Bankstown Local Environmental Plan (LEP) 2023, the Canterbury Bankstown Development Control Plan 2023, a draft Planning Agreement and Explanatory Note for the site at 1 and 1A North Terrace, Bankstown (known as the Bankstown Central shopping centre).

This proposal

The following documents are on exhibition for comment:

a. Planning Proposal (PP-2022-1898): The aim of this Planning Proposal is to amend the planning controls in parts of the site to:

  • Increase the maximum permissible height from 41m up to 86m.
  • Apply a new maximum Floor Space Ratio ranging from 3.4:1 to 7:1.
  • Amend Clause 6.14 ‘Restrictions on development in Zone B4 Mixed Use’ to enable residential development at ground level and above within certain parts of the site along Rickard Road and to require a minimum 50% employment generating floor space in the Town Centre Precinct on the site.

b. Draft amendments to the Canterbury Bankstown Development Control Plan (DCP) 2023: a site-specific DCP has been prepared by Council that includes controls relating to built form, landscaping, solar access, setbacks, through site links and open space design requirements.

c. Letter of Offer, Draft Planning Agreement and the Explanatory Note: The Letter of Offer from the developer to enter into a Planning Agreement with Council is included in the exhibition documents. The Letter of Offer will inform the preparation of a draft Planning Agreement and the Explanatory Note applying to the site identifies monetary contributions and public infrastructure works arising from the Planning Proposal and mechanisms for delivery of these commitments by the developer. The draft Planning Agreement and the Explanatory Note will be provided for exhibition at a later date, once the draft documents are finalised.

Additional documents relevant to this proposal (e.g. correspondence on the matter) have also been included in the document library below.

The Minister for Planning and Public Spaces has not delegated the making of the Plan to Council. Therefore should Council resolve to submit the Planning Proposal to the Department of Planning and Environment for finalisation, the Minister for Planning and Public Spaces will make a final decision whether to finalise the LEP Amendment.
