Recently the City of Canterbury Bankstown (CBCity) has experienced unprecedented heatwaves, floods and storms, poor air quality exacerbated by bushfires, and a disease pandemic. At the same time, many people in our community experience  daily pressures such as financial and housing stress, lack of transport options, and social isolation that can make it harder for them to cope when emergencies happen.

With more than 500,000 expected to be living in CBCity by 2036, it is more important than ever that our City and community is resilient and able to adapt and thrive into the future, no matter what challenges we may face as our diverse community grows and changes.

This inaugural Resilient CBCity Strategy sets out a direction for the City of Canterbury Bankstown, community and partners to work together to strengthen the resilience of our Local Government Area.

CBCity is helping residents become more resilient to disasters.
We are collaborating with other councils through the Resilient Sydney program to create a connected, inclusive and resilient metropolis.
We can’t stop disasters or emergencies from happening, but we can reduce how much they affect us.
