10 year vision

Residents are encouraged to have their say and help shape the future of the City of Canterbury Bankstown.

Administrator Richard Colley said Council is developing a new 10-year vision (Community Strategic Plan).

"We want to know what residents like about the City and would like changed," Mr Colley said.

"We will be holding two community events, on 7 June (6-8pm Bankstown Sports Club) and 8 June (11am-1pm Orion Centre, Campsie), where we’re inviting local residents, who would like to play a role in shaping the future of our City, to come along.

"It is very important for local residents to have their say on what projects will help make our City an even greater place to live in, work in, visit and enjoy."

The community can also have its say on the 2017-18 Operational Plan and Budget, which is on public exhibition until Tuesday 20 June 2017, at, with written comments to be received by 5pm on that same date.

More than $63.8 million has been allocated to the Capital Works program, more than $22 million than last year. It includes: 

  • $30.1 million for roads, footpaths, pedestrian/cycleways and drainage; 
  • $13.2 million for community buildings and parks, with more than $5 million for sporting fields, including Jensen Park, Belmore Sportsground and Waterworth Park; and 
  • $6.3 million for the upgrade of Canterbury town centre.

From 1 July 2017, pensioners in Canterbury will receive a $290 annual rebate, in line with Bankstown pensioners. The stormwater levy, $25 per standard home or $12.50 per strata unit, will be expanded across the City, enabling projects totaling $4.6 million to be delivered, including: 

  • Underground CCTV camera inspections of ageing stormwater infrastructure; 
  • Designing and/or construction work to improve local waterways, including sites at Paperbark Creek, Waterworth Park, Morgans Creek and Georges River; 
  • Renewing the condition of gross pollution traps and undertaking work to improve devices, including at Montgomery Reserve and Tasker Park; 
  • Using stormwater to irrigate street trees in Canterbury town centre; and 
  • Construction of a rain garden at Foord Avenue, Hurlstone Park.

Council won two of six categories at the 2016 Stormwater National Awards for Excellence, for its Stormwater Audit and Education Program, and for its litter devices used to capture rubbish and other pollutants before entering waterways.
