Bankstown will benefit from significant government and institutional investment, including Sydney Metro City and Southwest, a relocated Western Sydney University campus and a $1.3 billion commitment for a new hospital. Bankstown Airport is also a significant employment generator along with the Milperra industrial area.
To maximise these important opportunities Council, government agencies and key local organisations have come together to lead a coordinated approach to Bankstown’s future.
The Bankstown Airport Collaboration Area is key to the transformation of Bankstown into a health, academic, research and training precinct resulting in new jobs, a mix of housing types and infrastructure investment.
By 2036, Bankstown CBD and the Bankstown Airport Collaboration Area will be a green, healthy and dynamic destination that capitalises on its diverse culture and its proximity to Salt Pan Creek and Georges River.
It will be a centre for jobs and education, creating 25,000 jobs and destination to 25,000 students. A dynamic and connected business incubator, the Collaboration Area is located in the heart of Greater Sydney and will be a testing ground to grow and scale advanced manufacturing, aviation, health and education sectors.
The Bankstown CBD and Bankstown Airport Collaboration Area Place Strategy was co-designed by the Greater Sydney Commission and the Bankstown CBD and Bankstown Airport Collaboration Area Stakeholder Group between December 2018 and December 2019. The Strategy was approved by the Greater Sydney Commission in December 2019.
The Place Strategy identifies a vision and shared objectives for the place and sets out priorities and actions to realise this vision. Some actions are identified as immediate imperatives in order to focus efforts of local partners. The actions and immediate imperatives are dynamic and are subject to change as the Governance Group for each area is established and work is completed.
