The City of Canterbury Bankstown wrapped up the final quarter of 2017-18 with the completion of 295 projects for the year, valued at more than $54 million. These included, 194 Road, footpath and transport projects; 76 building projects; and 32 sports fields, playground and open space projects.

Over the last three-month period, Council also adopted a master plan for Parry Park; work began on the $2.5 million upgrade of Jensen Park, which includes the installation of a synthetic playing surface; and CBCity’s nine Library and Knowledge Centres attracted 361,229 visitors, with 222,031 items borrowed.

Other highlights included:

  • More than 14,200 meals delivered through Meals on Wheels;
  • $23,580 in fines issued for illegal dumping;
  • A 60 per cent reduction in litter across Flinders Slopes, Lansdowne and Lambeth Reserve, Picnic Point, due to the installation of 22 new litter bins;
  • The successful running of the largest Ramadan festival in Australia, in Haldon Street, Lakemba; and
  • 4,680 visits to Bankstown Arts Centre.

Mayor Khal Asfour said, moving forward, Council has started on its record $90.1 million 2018-19 Capital Works program.

"We did some fantastic work in the community in 2017-18 and I’m really excited to see the 2018-19 program being delivered," he said.

"These projects are part of our journey of meeting the community’s 10-year aspirations, outlined in the cbcity2028 community strategic plan, which involved the thoughts of more than 10,000 residents who took part in surveys, workshops and discussions.

"I encourage residents to visit see the work being completed across the City, using our new online interactive map.

"The $31 million we’re investing in roads, $3.9 million on footpaths and boardwalks, $8.1 million on parks and recreation and much more, shows our continued commitment to further improving CBCity," he said.
