Community to have say on Canterbury Road Corridor Review

​The community will have a say on the outcome of an extensive review conducted into  approved  development  and current development proposals, in the Canterbury Road Corridor, which spans 8.6 kilometres from Hurlstone Park to Punchbowl.

Overnight, City of Canterbury Bankstown Administrator Richard Colley, released the 510-page report, which includes 15 recommendations, at the Council’s monthly meeting.

Mr Colley ordered the review back in July, shortly after being appointed Administrator of the new City of Canterbury Bankstown, follo​​wing the amalgamation of the former Bankstown and Canterbury Councils.

“I believe the former Canterbury Council approved development well in excess of the height and scale recommended by its own strategies and policies, resulting in inconsistent and disorderly development along the corridor,” Mr Colley said.

“This approach encouraged long continuous stretches of mixed-use development, regardless of whether residents would have good access to public transport, parks and town centres or not.”

The review was conducted by a steering committee made up of NSW Government agencies, including the Roads and Maritime Services and Transport for NSW, and led by the Department of Planning.

The committee has made 15 recommendations relating to appropriate zoning and urban design; measures to address environmental issues, including noise and pollution; and traffic management, transportation and parking. New street layouts are also proposed for Canterbury Road, focused in seven key locations, refocusing development potential to areas that have better access to existing bus and train networks, parks, shops, and community facilities. In some areas, infrastructure that may be lacking in a particular location, such as parks, streets, laneways, footpaths, cycleways and other improvements, will need to be provided by the developer as part of any future proposal. Further, development would be reduced in some areas of the corridor, that don’t have good attributes for increased densities.

“There is more work to be done to complete the planning framework but community consultation needs to occur before we proceed further,” Mr Colley said. “The community’s input is an important step in establishing a new vision.”

Mr Colley has now ordered the review and recommendations to be placed on public exhibition next month, so the community can have its say on the detail. This will be advertised in local newspapers, with the documents placed online at and Council’s Bankstown and Canterbury Customer Service Centres and nine libraries, at that time.​​

“Once all feedback is considered, I expect the matter to be determined by the new Council,” Mr Colley said.

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

“It’s vitally important, the Canterbury Road Corridor is transformed into a sustainable and resilient place for people to live, work, travel and visit, and the principles outlined in the recommendations will help guide Council and State agencies in the future.”
