The City of Canterbury Bankstown has been recognised by the Greater Sydney Commission, for its commitment to consulting and engaging with the local community.

Council won the top award in the Great Community Collaboration category, for its CBCity 2028 10-year visionary document and Community Voice Panel.

The CBCity 2028 document captures the thoughts and aspirations of the community on how they want Canterbury-Bankstown to look like in 2028. While the Community Voice Panel is made up of residents who provide their opinions, particularly on the NSW Government’s Sydenham to Bankstown Urban Renewal Corridor. Their thoughts were then shared with the Government.

Mayor Khal Asfour welcomed the announcement.

"We remain committed to consulting with our community about important projects and initiatives," he said.

"This win demonstrates we’ve got some of the hardest working and innovative employees, all focused on putting the community first.

"I am immensely proud of the level of proactive engagement we’ve undertaken, which has well and truly gone beyond a ‘business as usual’ approach.

"Our residents and businesses have every right to be consulted and involved in shaping CBCity, which is why we continue to carry out and expand our extensive engagement activities."

Council was also a finalist in this year’s Local Government Excellence Awards in the: 

  • Community Partnerships and Collaboration category, for the Community Voice Panel; 
  • Excellence in People and Culture category, for creating its CBCity culture; 
  • Local Economic Contribution category, for this year’s Ramadan Nights Lakemba Festival; and 
  • Service Delivery Initiative category, for the community engagement vehicle, CBKombi.

Council is also nominated as a finalist in the Australian HR Team of the Year category, in this year’s Australian HR Awards.
