9 planning proposals rejected

9 planning proposals rejected The City of Canterbury Bankstown rejected nine planning proposals overnight, which, if approved, would have led to the construction of unit complexes exceeding the approved height limits along the Canterbury Road corridor. Yes  

The City of Canterbury Bankstown rejected nine planning proposals overnight, which, if approved, would have led to the construction of unit complexes exceeding the approved height limits along the Canterbury Road corridor. They included a plan to build a 15-storey development and the loss of employment land that can now be preserved.

The nine had been placed on hold while a review was conducted by an independent committee, into previous development in the area approved by the former Canterbury Council. Last month, the new Council introduced the committee’s 14 recommendations which related to:

  • Appropriate zoning, urban design and built-form controls along the corridor;
  • Measures to address environmental issues including noise and pollution; and
  • Traffic, transport and car parking issues.

Mayor Khal Asfour said the rejected planning proposals were for:

  • 251-267 Canterbury Road, Canterbury;
  • 403-411 Canterbury Road, 1 Una Street and the block bounded by Canterbury Road, Duke Street, Perry Street and Stanley Street, Campsie;
  • 538-546 and 570-580 Canterbury Road, Campsie;
  • 642-644 Canterbury Road, 650-658 Canterbury Road, 1-3 Platts Avenue, and 2, 2A-2D Liberty Street, Belmore;
  • 677-687 Canterbury Road and 46-48 Drummond Street, Belmore;
  • 754-774 Canterbury Road, Belmore;
  • 1112-1186 Canterbury Road, Roselands;
  • 1375 Canterbury Road, Punchbowl; and
  • 998 Punchbowl Road (1499 Canterbury Road), Punchbowl.

"Council’s decision has sent a clear message to developers – don’t waste our time with excessive proposals that are inconsistent with our new vision for Canterbury Road," Mayor Asfour said.

"We now have principles in place which will help guide Council and State agencies in creating a more liveable environment along Canterbury Road, and make sure it is transformed into a sustainable and resilient place where people have good access to parks, community facilities, public transport and shops.

"There is more work to do, starting with applying density controls to sites along Canterbury Road, that currently don’t have them, to deliver better design outcomes.

"This is about restoring public confidence and showing Council has a long-term vision for the corridor and can will implement it fairly and consistently."
