Private hospital one step closer to reality

Canterbury-Bankstown is one step closer to getting its first private hospital, after Councillors agreed to submit a Planning Proposal to amend the Local Environmental Plan overnight.

Under the Planning Proposal, the maximum Floor Space Ratio (FSR) allowable on the one hectare site, at 297-299 Canterbury Road, Revesby, would increase from 1:1 to 2.3:1, with a maximum building height of 22 metres. Once completed, the Planning Proposal will be reviewed by the Department of Planning, prior to being placed on public exhibition for community feedback.

Canterbury-Bankstown Private Hospital Pty Ltd is proposing to construct:

  • A six-storey 251-bed hospital;
  • Associated facilities;
  • Consulting rooms;
  • Child care centre; and
  • 433-vehicle three-level underground car park.

The applicant would also provide pedestrian crossings, footpaths, street lighting and seating, linking with the existing Bankstown-Lidcombe Hospital. The total cost of the project is more than $134 million.

The identified site is located around one kilometre from Bankstown-Lidcombe Hospital, with the project generating 500 jobs - 300 during the construction phase and 200 ongoing medical and health-related positions.

Mayor Asfour said Bankstown requires more health facilities to keep pace with the growing needs of the local community.

"We currently have more than 361,000 residents, with the NSW Government forecasting an extra 150,000 over the next 20 years," he said.

"We encourage both private and public sector projects which strengthen medical services in Canterbury-Bankstown. Having said that, we will still put such projects through our rigorous assessment processes.

"We are currently liaising with NSW Health on the possibility of building a new public hospital in Bankstown’s CBD, replacing the existing aged Bankstown-Lidcombe facility.

"This further emphasises the importance of undergrounding Bankstown Railway Station, freeing up much needed land for more public facilities and open space," Mayor Asfour said.

"It also makes a reality, the Greater Sydney Commission’s vision for Bankstown to be a health and education precinct, with Western Sydney University having already identified land adjacent to Paul Keating Park for a new campus."

The NSW Government will make the final decision on whether the Bankstown private hospital project goes ahead.
