- Early engagement to develop a strategy and shared vision for the three corridors
- Interactive map
Over the last two years, Canterbury-Bankstown Council has been working with the community and key agencies on the development of corridor plans for our priority green grid corridors. These priority corridors spread across multiple stakeholders/ landowners including NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service, Transport for NSW, Sydney Water and neighbouring Councils. The priority corridors Council has been working on are:
The COVID-19 pandemic has clearly demonstrated the importance our community places on access to open place and recreation facilities. With an increase in people accessing our parks and bushland, a greater demand for high quality open spaces and a reconnection with our local environment, these plans represent our vision for each corridor.
This work has been supported by the Department of Planning, Industry and Environment through the Metropolitan Greenspace Program in order to help Council’s deliver on the vision of the Government Architect New South Wales (GANSW) for a network of high-quality green spaces known as the Sydney Green Grid.
The Corridor Plans provide recommendations for improved recreation, accessibility, ecology, culture and lifestyle. These recommendations were developed based on the engagement undertaken in April 2021 as well as by working closely with Government stakeholders, partner Councils and subject area experts.
High priorities for each priority corridor are as follow:
Cooks River Corridor
Wolli Creek Corridor
