Campsie Town Centre will evolve from a main street local centre into a vibrant health and lifestyle precinct that services the Canterbury-Bankstown community. The Campsie Town Centre Master Plan sets a vision to guide and manage this growth, renewal and change in Campsie.
The Master Plan seeks to leverage the unique attributes and anchors of Campsie, such as its proximity to central Sydney, its location on the Cooks River, the presence of Canterbury Hospital and a thriving main street, to facilitate 7,500 jobs and an additional 5,600 dwellings in the centre and 760 dwellings along Canterbury Road by 2036. The draft Plan provides a framework to inform the delivery of infrastructure, improvements to the design and sustainability of buildings, public domain improvements, the delivery of affordable housing, increased capacity for jobs, housing and community facilities and an approach to the management of heritage and character.

We are required to undertake the following work to implement the Master Plan and enable the delivery of development under the new planning framework:
The next stage is to prepare and lodge a Planning Proposal. A Planning Proposal is a document that explains the intended effect of a proposed Local Environmental Plan (LEP) or LEP amendment and sets out the justification for making that plan. Planning Proposals are usually prepared by local councils and reviewed and approved by State Government.
The next steps are illustrated below:

Can I lodge a Development Application based on the Master Plan?
No, whilst the Master Plan is an adopted policy of Council, it does not have any weight in assessing a development application. The current planning controls continue to apply until such a time that the Planning Proposal to implement the Master Plans is finalised.
Can I lodge my own Planning Proposal based on the Master Plan?
We discourage lodgement of site-specific Planning Proposals in the Campsie Town Centre that seek to implement the Planning Proposal, as we are pursuing a centre-wide Planning Proposal for its implementation.
When will all of this development occur?
The Master Plan provides a framework for growth and change over the next 15 years and beyond. It is likely that development will occur in a staged manner in the short, medium and long term.
