Next steps for Canterbury Road Review

Next steps for Canterbury Road Review The City of Canterbury Bankstown has been given the green light to implement 14 recommendations made following an extensive independent review of development along the Canterbury Road Corridor. Yes  

The City of Canterbury Bankstown has been given the green light to implement 14 recommendations made following an extensive independent review of development along the Canterbury Road Corridor.

The review was ordered in 2016, prompted by the former Canterbury Council’s loose planning controls which resulted in overdevelopment and traffic management issues. The new Council also deferred 10 planning proposals which had been lodged relating to land in the corridor.

The review, undertaken by a committee chaired by the NSW Department of Planning and included representatives from Transport for NSW, Roads and Maritime Services, and Greater Sydney Commission, made recommendations relating to: 

  • Appropriate zoning, urban design and built-form controls along the corridor;
  • Measures to address environmental issues including noise and pollution; and
  • Traffic, transport and car parking issues.

The recommendations were placed on public exhibition for six weeks late last year, with 85 submissions received, the majority supportive of the review’s recommendations. The main issues raised included:

  • Planning implications beyond the immediate Canterbury Road corridor;
  • Over-development;
  • Traffic and transport;
  • Public domain improvements; and
  • Property-related concerns.

Overnight, Councillors voted unanimously to take the next step.

"We will now work on resolving matters, such as density, height, and pedestrian and traffic access, and conduct the necessary economic and detailed urban design testing," Mayor Khal Asfour said.

"The recommendations will help guide Council and State agencies in creating a more liveable environment along Canterbury Road, and make sure it is transformed into a sustainable and resilient place where people have good access to parks, community facilities, public transport and shops.

"There is a more work to do, starting with applying density controls to sites along Canterbury Road, that currently don’t have them, to create better design outcomes.

"The 10 outstanding planning proposals relating to land along Canterbury Road, which have been on hold since the review began, will be referred to the Local Planning Panel for advice before any action is taken.

"This is about restoring public confidence and show Council has a long-term vision for the corridor and can implement it fairly and consistently."
