Parking review

The City of Canterbury Bankstown is reviewing parking availability as part of its commitment to the revitalization of Bankstown’s CBD.

Mayor Khal Asfour said the next stage of the Bankstown CBD Property Renewal Strategy would look at a number of detailed options for improving access to parking in the precinct.

"This work needs to be done sooner rather than later, with more than 39,000 people expected to be living in Bankstown’s CBD by 2036," Mayor Asfour said.

"Like it or not, we need to start planning for the extra people moving around our City, due to the forecast population growth.

"We need to analyse how the existing six public car parks operate in Bankstown’s CBD; their condition; how often they are used; and determine whether their current location remains the right place to efficiently service the needs of motorists.

"This is not about looking to reduce the number of parking spots, but we need to be smart on how we go about meeting the need because we just don’t have millions of dollars sitting around."

Council is proposing to:

  • Prepare masterplans to guide future redevelopment of the Greenfield Parade Car Park, West Terrace Car Park and Senior Citizens Centre, Stanley Street Car Park, Meredith Street Car Park and their surrounds;
  • Complete a detailed masterplan and design for the Brandon Avenue Car Park and Griffith Park sites and surrounds;
  • Undertake a cost-benefit analysis to consider constructing an additional two levels of parking on the existing multi-deck car park in Marion Street, or the alternative scenario, which includes removing the existing structure and constructing a major parking station at the location; and
  • Discussing and negotiating potential opportunities with adjoining owners, including Bankstown Sports Club.

Mayor Asfour said that while parking is important, attempts must be made to future-proof the City.

"We must start looking at other modes of transport, making them more accessible, and other ways to move around our City’s major hubs. Cars are not the answer in a cosmopolitan city," Mayor Asfour said.
