Future blueprints approved for exhibition

Future blueprints approved for exhibition Future blueprints approved for exhibition No  

 The NSW Government has approved for the blueprints, which will guide future development growth in the central and south-western parts of Canterbury-Bankstown, to be placed on public exhibition a final time. 

The decision by the Department of Planning and Environment comes eight months after they were lodged by the former Bankstown Council. 

However, the Department has only agreed with four of around 40 late amendments, made at the final meeting of the former Council on 11 May 2016, to be included in the documents. They are: 

  •  Rezoning 102 Columbine Avenue, Punchbowl, to R2 Low Density Residential, with a maximum building height of two storeys (plus attic) and provide a Floor Space Ratio to match the height limit; 
  • Providing a maximum building height of four storeys for 23 Canterbury Road, Punchbowl; 
  • Retaining 55A Gascoigne Road, Birrong, as open space; and 
  • ​Retaining 96 Malvern Street, Panania as open space. 

City of Canterbury Bankstown Administrator, Richard Colley, said the documents will now be placed on public exhibition for the final time later this year. 

“It’s very important residents take the time to take a look at the final draft and provide their feedback,” Mr Colley said. 

“Their comments helped shape the changes made on the previous two occasions which led to reaching this final stage of the process. 

“The importance of these documents should not be underestimated. They will be the blueprints for any potential future development in central and south-western parts of our City into the future.” 

The North-East, South-West, South-East, and North Central Local Area Plans cover rezonings, building height limits, floor space ratios and recreational/open space areas. 

“If we are to build tomorrow’s future and continue stimulating economic growth in our City, we need to ensure new jobs and homes are created for our community,” Mr Colley said. 

“These documents lead that growth in a responsible and considered manner.”
