Planning community engagement plan

The City of Canterbury Bankstown is making it clearer and easier for residents to understand how they can participate in planning decisions, through its new Community Participation Plan (CPP).

Last night, Council endorsed the draft which, if given the green light after exhibition, will replace the notification provisions set out in the Canterbury and Bankstown Development Control Plans (DCPs).

The new aligned policy sets out how Council will engage with the local community, when it comes to planning matters, such as:

  • Development Applications;
  • Planning Proposals, Local Strategic Planning Statements, new Local Environmental Plans and Development Control Plans; and
  • Making or amending Contribution Plans and Planning Agreements.

Mayor Khal Asfour said it was just another step Council was taking to ensure complete transparency.

"We remain committed to informing, consulting, involving, collaborating, educating and empowering the community, in the lead-up to the making of important decisions on plans and strategies which impact thousands of residents," he said.

"It is very important for residents to have a say in how their area is improved, with their feedback used to help guide Council in the shaping of the City’s future."

The CPP will:

  • Explore opportunities in how to involve a diverse range of community groups and people from all backgrounds;
  • Identify and implement engagement techniques for people of all abilities;
  • Place importance on communicating planning matters in plain English and using visual aids;
  • Encourage greater digital and electronic engagement; and
  • Ensure planning matters are communicated early, with opportunities for ongoing participation and reporting back to residents who provide their feedback.

The Draft Community Participation Plan will be on public exhibition until 5pm Wednesday 31 July, with residents encouraged to view it and have their say at cb.city/haveyoursay
