Almost $88 million has been allocated in the City of Canterbury Bankstown’s Draft 2018-19 Operational Plan.
It will be the first time, since amalgamation, that a draft budget will be linked to the 10-year Community Strategic Plan, which is a vision of what Council hopes the City will look like by 2028.

"I know that we can achieve a City that is thriving, dynamic and real, if we undertake tangible actions now," Mayor Asfour said.
The community will have the chance to have its say on the Draft 2018-19 Operational Plan, which is on public exhibition at Council’s Customer Service Centres and nine Library and Knowledge Centres, until Thursday 31 May.
Residents are also invited to put a submission in online at haveyoursay.cbcity.nsw.gov.au, with all comments to be received by 5pm on the same date.

One of the ways Council’s Community Engagement team intends to further involve the community is through "taking it to the streets" in its new engagement vehicle to promote community conversations.
