Program aligned for town centre upgrades

The City of Canterbury Bankstown has unveiled a new program which will ensure all town centres are maintained and upgraded when required.

Administrator Richard Colley said the Liveable Centres Program aligns the programs of the former Bankstown and Canterbury Councils.

“With the NSW Government working on plans to upgrade the Campsie, Canterbury, Lakemba and Belmore town centres, as part of its Sydenham to Bankstown Urban Renewal Strategy, it’s important other town centres are not forgotten,” Mr Colley said.

“Council too needs to play a role in meeting the growing needs of the community and that includes maintaining the 84 smaller town centres and suburban shopping strips in our City, in a coordinated and sustainable fashion.

“Under the Liveable Centres Program, the upgrading of all town centres in our City will be prioritised and budgeted for on an annual basis.

“Areas which will be focused on include further increasing pedestrian safety; enhancing each town centre’s identity through community-based public art; assessing the current condition of roads and footpaths; addressing the needs of local business, economic viability and increased shopper visitation; and improving the environment with even cleaner streets, new street furniture and trees, gardens and raingardens.”

The Liveable Centres Program is scheduled to kick-off in July next year.

The dedicated fund for the Liveable Centres Program will be combined with available funds from the Capital Works Program, Section 94A, and the Stormwater Levy, to meet the expenses of all the town centre upgrades.​
