In 2019, Council released Connective City 2036, which establishes a single strategic planning vision for the Canterbury Bankstown Local Government Area, and will guide any changes to our planning framework.

This vision is about sustainably growing our City, protecting environmental values, delivering housing for our next generations and maximising employment opportunities.

The next step is to produce a single set of planning rules for our City based on the vision that was set by Connective City 2036. This is the Consolidated Local Environmental Plan, which combines and aligns planning rules of the former Bankstown and Canterbury Councils.

A planning proposal was endorsed by the Canterbury Bankstown Local Planning Panel to progress to exhibition on 6 March 2020. The planning proposal and supporting technical studies are now on public exhibition for comment and feedback.
