Consultation has concluded

Background

In 2019, Council completed their Local Strategic Planning Statement (known as Connective City 2036) and the Bankstown Complete Streets CBD Transport and Place Plan. These documents set out the strategic land use and transport vision for Canterbury-Bankstown.

Connective City 2036 recognises Bankstown City Centre as the city’s key Strategic Centre. Connective City 2036 also identifies the need to develop a place-based and design-led master plan to lead the growth of Bankstown.

In line with Connective City 2036, Council has commenced the master planning process for Bankstown. The master plan provides the opportunity to co-locate genuine job-generating development with housing, services, utilities and social infrastructure.

The aim of this master plan is to improve the quality of development in Bankstown and create a place the community can be proud of. The master plan will develop mechanisms to improve the quality and sustainability of the city centre, implement the actions of Bankstown Complete Streets and create a great place for the community. This involves the preparation of a series of technical studies to guide growth and change. Once finalised, the master plan will be developed into a planning proposal that updates the objectives and controls of Council’s Local Environmental Plan and Development Control Plan.

This project is being partly funded by the NSW Department of Planning, Industry and Environment.
