Canterbury-Bankstown is a vibrant, bustling and diverse City, which over the last five years has grown and undergone major transformation. This has included substantial investments in community facilities, open spaces and infrastructure. These investments have been made possible using a combination of Council and other government funding, as well as the private sector.

However, as we continue to grow, our City faces current and future challenges including financial sustainability, climate change impacts, housing needs, waste management and future transport.

Delivering a City that is Thriving, Dynamic and Real cannot be achieved by Council alone, it also requires better collaboration and support from the State and Federal Governments.

To help encourage this collaboration, we have identified more strategic ways to engage with the other levels of government which includes clearly outlining our priorities for the future. To better communicate this, Council has developed the Draft CBCity Advocacy Strategic Plan and the associated Draft CBCity Advocacy Priorities.

This proposal

Join the conversation and Have Your Say on the future priorities of our City through the Draft CBCity Advocacy Strategic Plan and the associated Advocacy Priorities.

Let us know what you think about:

  • Whether you support this advocacy plan and the priorities;
  • What you think are the top three advocacy priorities;
  • Whether there is anything significant missing from these priorities.

We know that an effective advocacy strategy helps to shape public opinion and influence policy decisions, with the ultimate goal of achieving positive results for our community (such as improved public transport and funding to build new community facilities). Please read through the plan and priorities documents and complete the survey below to provide your feedback.
