Council elections on this Saturday

Council elections on this Saturday Don’t forget the City of Canterbury Bankstown elections will be held this Saturday 9 September. No city of canterbury bankstown election Don’t forget the City of Canterbury Bankstown elections will be held this Saturday 9 September.  

​Don’t forget the City of Canterbury Bankstown elections will be held this Saturday 9 September.

The Council is one of 46 across NSW going to the polls to decide who will represent them for the next three years.

It’s the first time since the amalgamation on 12 May 2016 that around 160,000 residents have the opportunity to vote.

The new Council will comprise 15 Councillors, made up of three Councillors per ward for Bass Hill, Bankstown, Canterbury, Revesby and Roselands.

Appointed interim Administrator, Richard Colley, said Council is in a great position to hand back to the elected Councillors in the coming weeks.

"The transition period, since 12 May 2016, has been a very busy time, with the alignment of contracts, processes, procedures and systems," he said.

"Like any major City, we have and will always have challenges to tackle but those challenges are due to the success of a developing and progressive City.

"Bringing these two large organisations together has taken significant time, energy and resources, and while we are only a fraction of the way there, I am proud of the progress interim General Manager, Matthew Stewart, and his great staff have made.

"I am very confident we have laid a solid foundation for the City’s new Councillors, who will be elected this coming weekend."

Some achievements include:

  • The introduction of a new Code of Conduct, and Fraud and Corruption Prevention Policies, reviewed by the Independent Commission Against Corruption (ICAC);
  • Introduction of a City-wide Independent Hearing and Assessment Panel (IHAP), which determines development applications submitted by Council, a Councillor or Council Officer;
  • Introduction of e-planning user-friendly forms, a checklist, information sheets and an application guide to assist applicants and developers on how to lodge a planning and building application; and
  • A thorough review of developments proposed for land along the Canterbury Road Corridor, including a list of recommendations to be considered by the new Council.

"While these are significant actions that have taken place, there are hundreds of improvements that have also been introduced, aimed at the delivery of even better services for our residents," Mr Colley said.

"What happens next will be up to the new Council to decide. It’s their advocacy and support, which will determine the future of our City. This is why I remind you again to vote this weekend so that you can have the right people champion for your rights and for your City."

If you cannot vote on Election Day, you can vote early at the following pre-poll venues:

  • Bankstown Senior Citizens’ Centre, 7 West Terrace, Bankstown;
  • Canterbury-Bankstown Returning Officer’s Office, Level 1, 194-198 Lakemba Street, Lakemba;
  • Revesby Community Centre, Macarthur Avenue, Revesby; and
  • The Orion Function Centre, 155 Beamish Street, Campsie
  • Sydney Town Hall, 483 George Street, Sydney.

Polling places are open from 8am-6pm. Voting is compulsory for everyone enrolled in the Council area. For more information or to check your enrolment details, go to or call 1300 135 736.
