The City of Canterbury Bankstown has been working 'Smart' for a number of years but, in April 2018, Mayor Khal Asfour pledged support to become a leading Smart City, using technology and data to make our lives better for the future. He asked that Council investigates options to create its own plan for Smart City success.​

In July 2018, Council developed a CitySMART function within the organisation structure and work commenced on its Smart Cities Roadmap and Smart City program. ​

In October 2018, Council endorsed the Draft Smart CBCity Roadmap and placed it on public exhibition, for a lengthy period of time (from June 2018). This extended public consultation period, is a deliberate effort by Council to be truly consultative and ensure no-one is left behind in our journey to becoming a Smart City.​

What is a Smart City? 

Our definition:
"Using technology infrastructure, community engagement and connectivity, to evolve our City and make real improvements."

Our mission statement:
"Canterbury-Bankstown will create a thriving, dynamic and real City, addressing the big challenges that matter to our community. We will achieve this by using technology and data, to deliver more responsive and effective services, and facilitate resilient and informed decision-making."

Our Roadmap
