We have considered expert advice on how to get the most from current and proposed infrastructure and identified where we need to collaborate with the NSW Government to deliver the infrastructure to support growth. The 10 Evolutions are aspirational. They move beyond addressing backlogs to identify the kind of city-shaping and community-serving infrastructure we need. The 10 Evolutions are arranged in terms of scale; each is as important as the next and all will be integrated and coordinated into one outcome. Each evolution identifies:
Innovative thinking and design, good governance and collaboration between all stakeholders is required to achieve the vision.
Connectivity is critical. This evolution identifies a transport network that supports the premier locations for change (Bankstown and Campsie) and better connections for people living in other urban and suburban areas to transport interchanges and connectivity options.
Canterbury-Bankstown’s centres and industry sector strengths offer a diversity of jobs. This evolution identifies the land use context needed to stimulate jobs growth in centres and where growth in new industry sectors will attract new jobs.
Waterways are a valued asset for the City. This evolution sets out how we can better integrate the Cooks, Georges and Duck rivers and their tributaries and creeks into urban and suburban
The Green Web is an interconnected network of green spaces and natural areas. This evolution shows how the Green Web will extend across the City as we enhance existing and proposed green links.
Diversity of housing is fundamental to a thriving and dynamic City. This evolution identifies the most appropriate locations for growth and change where we will work with the NSW Government to focus investment. Suburban areas will be preserved for low density housing on quieter, tree-lined streets.
The City offers a great lifestyle with cultural pockets and a diversity of people and places within the community. This evolution sets out the city-shaping and community-supporting infrastructure required to sustain and enhance Canterbury-Bankstown.
The City has many places of built, natural and cultural heritage and places with real character. This evolution describes how we can instil the right design choices to achieve a sustainable, liveable, healthy and attractive city.
This evolution sets out place-based approaches that manage energy, water and waste efficiently to help us build resilience across the City, encourage sustainable urban living and create cooler streets that help to mitigate changes in the climate.
This evolution sets out the funding framework and processes to ensure required infrastructure is properly staged and funded.
