Futuristic vision set for CBCity 2028

Futuristic vision set for CBCity 2028 A vision of what our residents want Canterbury-Bankstown to look like in 10 years, and the blueprint of how to get there, has been clearly laid out in the Draft Community Strategic Plan, CBCity 2028. Yes  

A vision of what our residents want Canterbury-Bankstown to look like in 10 years, and the blueprint of how to get there, has been clearly laid out in the Draft Community Strategic Plan, CBCity 2028.

From September 2016 to July 2017, Council underwent an extensive engagement with the community, to gather their ideas and priorities for the area.

City of Canterbury Bankstown Mayor, Khal Asfour, applauded the community for taking ownership of their future.

"More than 3,000 information flyers were distributed, 1,620 community surveys were completed, and 10,000 conversations were held across Canterbury-Bankstown," Mayor Asfour said.

"In addition, we captured the views of more than 200 representatives from businesses, the community, sport, recreation and government groups, as well as more than 100 people at our Visioning Workshops.

"I’m extremely appreciative to all those who took the time to contribute their bold ideas and thoughts, and I’m proud to say this is truly a plan by the community, for the community."

The community’s vision for the future, as outlined in the plan, is:

Canterbury-Bankstown is thriving, dynamic, and real!

"This short phrase encompasses what our community thinks and feels, and that is, they have an overwhelming sense of pride in where they live and who they are, and they want our City to be one that’s innovative and growing," Mayor Asfour said.

Residents also suggested they wanted Canterbury-Bankstown to be a destination, which is:

  • Safe and Strong;
  • Clean and Green;
  • Prosperous and Innovative;
  • Moving and Integrated;
  • Healthy and Active;
  • Liveable and Distinctive; and
  • Leading and Engaged.

"In a decade, we want to be able to say that our residents still love how we’ve maintained the ‘village feel’ of Canterbury-Bankstown and enjoy the cosmopolitan, vibrant and dynamic nature of the City, which continues to be well-planned, well-managed and well-designed," Mayor Asfour said.

"We want to be able to say our City is living a healthy and active lifestyle, and that our community is taking advantage of our many modern aquatic community facilities.

"We want to be able to boast about how we’ve achieved an enviable sustainable City, and how we are home to a large-scale solar farm.

"We want to be able to say that Bankstown railway station has been redeveloped as an underground station, which connects to Liverpool, and that a new connection between Parramatta and Hurstville has been constructed."

While these ideas are more than attainable, Mayor Asfour said the future was dependent on a collaborative approach.

"The future of our City cannot be reliant on just Council vying for better outcomes," Mayor Asfour said.

"We need support from our residents and businesses, but more importantly, from the NSW and Federal Governments, who have the power and ability to transform Canterbury-Bankstown into a global City leader.

"All levels of government need to be working side-by-side to build new and improved health, education, transport, and recreational infrastructure such as schools, hospitals, roads, open space and transport options."

Residents have the opportunity to provide further comment and feedback on the 54-page plan, which will be on public exhibition from today (28 February) until 5pm, Friday 30 March, when submissions close.

Further comprehensive community engagement will also take place across the City, including:

  • Belmore train station – Monday 5 March (8-10am);
  • Canterbury train station – Monday 5 March (8-10am);
  • Earlwood Senior Citizen Centre – Wednesday 7 March (2-4pm);
  • Canterbury-Bankstown Business Advisory Service Business Breakfast – Thursday 8 March (7-9am);
  • Bankstown Central Shopping Centre – Thursday 8 March (3-5pm);
  • Chullora Marketplace – Thursday 8 March (5-7pm);
  • Bankstown Arts Centre at the 4Elements Festival – Saturday 10 March (1-3pm);
  • Chester Hill Library and Knowledge Centre – Monday 12 March (2-4pm);
  • Bass Hill Library and Knowledge Centre – Thursday 15 March (4-6pm);
  • Padstow Library and Knowledge Centre – Tuesday 20 March (1-3pm);
  • Roselands Shopping Centre – Wednesday 21 March (11am-1pm);
  • Revesby Woolworths – Thursday 22 March (2-4pm); and
  • Anzac Park, Campsie – Saturday 24 March (9-11am).

Those who complete the full survey at cb.city/haveyoursay, will go in the draw to win an Apple Mini iPad, which will be drawn on Friday 6 April.
