Canterbury Road Corridor win for CBCity

Canterbury Road Corridor win for CBCity The Independent Planning Commission (IPC) has supported the City of Canterbury Bankstown’s decision, to not progress a Planning Proposal for land in Canterbury Road corridor. No  

The Independent Planning Commission (IPC) has supported the City of Canterbury Bankstown’s decision, to not progress a Planning Proposal for land in Canterbury Road corridor.

The proposal by Pacific Planning, for land bound by Liberty Street, Platts Avenue and Canterbury Road, Belmore, was one of nine rejected by Council in June last year, following recommendations made in an independent review. Despite the Department of Planning also supporting Council’s position, Pacific Planning challenged the decision in the IPC.

Mayor Khal Asfour welcomed the IPC’s support.

"This kind of development won’t be approved on my watch," Mayor Asfour said.

"This proposal involved rezoning land reserved for employment to build an eight-storey residential complex, which would have been an inappropriate development for that location.

"If developers want to waste their money and challenge us, we won’t back down from a fight.

"We remain committed to our City and its residents. We will consult them and protect them from overdevelopment, and make no apology for that."

Mayor Asfour reaffirmed Council’s decision to apply all 14 recommendations, following the independent review into previously approved development in the Canterbury Road corridor, by the former Canterbury Council, and implementing changes governing future applications, including:

  • Appropriate zoning, urban design and built-form controls along the corridor;
  • Measures to address environmental issues, such as noise and pollution;
  • Traffic, transport and car parking issues;
  • Providing good access to parks, community facilities, public transport and shops; and
  • Completing a new city-wide Local Environmental Plan (LEP) by 2020, to guide all development.
