Three-month consultation period

Three-month consultation period Two community consultation sessions will be held to discuss a Planning Proposal, aimed at amending the Canterbury Local Environmental Plan 2012, to rezone a large property at 149-171 Milton Street, Ashbury. No  

Two community consultation sessions will be held to discuss a Planning Proposal, aimed at amending the Canterbury Local Environmental Plan 2012, to rezone a large property at 149-171 Milton Street, Ashbury.

In September last year, Council refused proposals lodged by the owners seeking a rezoning to allow for the construction of apartment blocks up to 11 storeys.

It subsequently prepared its own proposal for up to six storeys, with a much lower density. This was assessed by the Department of Planning and Environment which has agreed it can now be placed on public exhibition.

"This is a large old industrial site which hasn’t been used for some time and is unsightly," Mayor Asfour said.

"But, in looking to make it a more usable space, we must not allow for overdevelopment like what was allowed to occur along nearby Canterbury Road.

"That’s why we have stepped in to find a compromise. We now want to hear what the local community thinks to achieve the best outcome."

Mayor Asfour said, while the Government only requires Council to place the proposal on public exhibition for 28 days, he had instructed officers to give residents three months to provide their feedback.

"I am mindful Christmas is fast approaching and I want residents to have enough time to have their say, if they wish," Mayor Asfour said.

The two community drop-in sessions will be held at Ashbury Senior Citizens Centre:

  • Saturday 9 December, from 9.30-11.30am; and
  • Wednesday 7 February, from 5-7pm.

The proposal can be viewed at, Council’s Customer Service Centres and Campsie Library and Knowledge Centre until 5pm 16 February 2018, when submissions close. Submissions can be lodged by:

  • Post – The General Manager, City of Canterbury Bankstown, PO Box 8, Bankstown. NSW. 1885;
  • Email –;
  • Phone – 9789 9618 (Tom Foster); or
  • Online –
