Latest update


In 2018 and reaffirmed again in 2022, the people of Canterbury-Bankstown helped us create a Vision for the City to be Thriving, Dynamic and Real.

To deliver the Vision, you told us you wanted CBCity to be:

Safe & Strong

A proud inclusive community that unites, celebrates and cares.

Clean and green

A cool, clean and sustainable city with healthy waterways and natural areas.

A smart and evolving city with exciting opportunities for investment and creativity.

An accessible city with great local destinations and many options to get there.

A motivated city that nurtures healthy minds and bodies.

A well designed, attractive city which preserves the identity and character of local villages.

A well-governed city with brave and future focused leaders who listen.

At the 26 April 2022 Ordinary Meeting, Council authorised the exhibition of the draft Operational and Organisational planning documents that will guide our efforts over the coming years to ensure we deliver the community’s Vision for Canterbury-Bankstown.

This exhibition period commences on Monday 2 May 2022 and closes at 5pm on Friday 3 June 2022.

Draft CBCity 2036

CBCity 2036

CBCity 2036 details the community’s vision and aspirations for the next decade and beyond. It addresses four key questions.

  • Where are we now?
  • Where do we want to be in 2036?
  • How will we get there?
  • How will we know when we have arrived?

This is a great plan to look at if you want to know where the City is heading and key local, state and national stakeholders that will play a role in making it a reality.

Draft 2022-25 Delivery Program and 2022/23 Operational Plan incorporating the Budget and Schedule of Fees and Charges; and Resourcing Strategies for Finance, Assets and Workforce.
