Last chance to have your say

Time is running out to have a say on the future direction of Canterbury-Bankstown, with Council’s four-month engagement opportunity scheduled to end on Monday 31 July. 

Administrator Richard Colley said Council had undertaken extensive consultation with the community to identify the main priorities and aspirations for the City for the next 10 years. 

“More than 6,000 people have already taken part in workshops and provided comments to Council staff at shopping centres and community events. A further 1,350 residents have completed telephone and online surveys,” Mr Colley said. 

Among them is Bankstown resident Jackeline Alva. 

“It was an opportunity to share with Council what I felt was important for development in my suburb and the surrounding area,” Ms Alva said. 

“Some of the things important to me are expanding open spaces in the CBD. In the next 10 years, I’m interested in having a family and pet, and I don’t feel areas around where I live at the moment encourages that lifestyle as well as the outer Canterbury-Bankstown suburbs.” 

Another point she raised was the development of local business in Canterbury-Bankstown. 

“I have seen how business has evolved in other suburbs over time but I don’t feel like some locations around Canterbury-Bankstown are as buzzing or convenient,” she said. 

“Activating the streets around the CBD and upgrading the buildings with TLC will make these places more attractive and accessible for people to wander in. 

“Personally, I would like to see a lot more variety in the area too. We have very unique restaurants that are catered towards specific demographics in the area, but I feel it’s quite narrow in its offering. 

“I would like to see more restaurant and entertainment options, which would offer a lot more value for residents and keep them in the local area rather than travel to other places.” 

Ms Alva encouraged the community to provide their feedback before it’s too late. 

“Our opinions matter. The more people who complete this survey and are heard will guide Council in the choices it makes on behalf of the community. It’s important Council has diversity of opinions to understand what we as residents, workers and even visitors really want,” she said. 

The online survey is open until Monday 31 July. For your chance to have your say, and win one of three $100 gift cards, complete the survey at ​
