Connective City 2036 is our blueprint that will deliver the vision for the City in the Community Strategic Plan, CBCity 2028, and responds the NSW Government policies including the
Greater Sydney Region Plan, South District Plan, Future Transport 2056 and NSW State Infrastructure Strategy.
Connective City 2036 sets a clear vision, establishes land use directions, and sets priorities – including responsibilities and timeframes - to demonstrate why and how infrastructure can been arranged and how the City relates to neighbouring local government areas and to Greater Sydney as a whole.
The plan will:
Promote the City's strengths and opportunities to the community, workers and visitors, and Sydney as a whole.
Position Canterbury-Bankstown within Greater Sydney and the metropolis of three cities, giving it a unique identity and importance.
Provide direction on what infrastructure is required and where it should be located to help guide Council, the community, employers and decision making.
Inform State agencies of City priorities when they are planning and programming to determine State infrastructure needs.
Define and protect our distinctiveness, areas with a strong sense of character and unique features.
Identify and define the locations that offer opportunities for growth and change, the vision for that change and how it will occur.
Inform changes to Council policies and statutory plans such as the new local environmental plan and the new development control plan.
Provide the framework to prioritise future growth areas subject to Council-led structure and master planning, guided by community and stakeholder engagement.
Guide planning ideas for future investigation.
Connective City 2036 will be referred to across all parts of Council work, and in discussions with landowners and developers to provide certainty and cut down unnecessary speculation, particularly in areas that are unsuitable for development.
The plan has statutory (legal) weight and must now be considered when any changes to land uses are being proposed (planning proposals).
