Mock up from a master plan

Master Plans are strategic documents that guide the growth of development. They illustrate the future vision of a place and set a framework for planning controls to achieve this vision. This includes guiding how streets, buildings, public spaces and infrastructure will be improved and delivered.

Connective City 2036, our Local Strategic Planning Statement (LSPS), requires Master Plans for town centres in the City of Canterbury Bankstown that will accommodate additional residents, jobs and visitors. The Master Plans create a positive vision for the future of our centres and coordinate growth with supporting infrastructure. The Master Plans will achieve the vision of the LSPS for the City by:

  • Achieving design excellence.
  • Realising net zero carbon emissions by 2050 and implementing environmentally sustainable development.
  • Encouraging a substantial shift toward active and public transport.
  • Providing adequate infrastructure to support population growth.
  • Sustaining economic growth and prosperity.
  • Providing more housing choice and increasing affordable housing options.
  • Protecting and enhancing heritage and local character.
  • Delivering and strengthening cultural places and space spaces.
  • Improving the night time economy.

The City of Canterbury Bankstown has a road map to create master plans for its centres. On 24 September 2019, Council resolved to stage the Master Plans within the indicative stages below.
