Why We Love Canterbury

Consultation has concluded

The City of Canterbury is responsible for a wide range of services and infrastructure including roads, community facilities, libraries, parks, garbage removal, urban planning, and development. We maintain numerous sports grounds, playgrounds, open spaces, and bushland reserves. We are also proud of our waterways, and have a built a cycleway along the Cooks River for people to discover the natural beauty of our City.

In addition to having a large range of recreation and leisure facilities, we cater for the diverse range of people and cultures that make up our community, with a wide range of multicultural services and facilities. We also have dedicated services for the aged, children and youth.

Results

‘Why we love Canterbury’ campaign aimed to identify what the community values most about the City of Canterbury. Residents were asked to rank their top five values.

Here’s what you told us you most value about Canterbury City:

1. Council Libraries (61.91%)
2. Parks and Recreational spaces (57.64%)
3. Clean, attractive City (43.99%)
4. Green spaces (34.42%)
5. Swimming pools (29.67%)

The results of the campaign will help guide the planning of a new Council, if the City of Canterbury is subject to an amalgamation.

The campaign commenced on Tuesday, 2 February and closed on Monday, 4 April, 2016 and more than 490 surveys were completed.

The survey was available online at www.canterburyconnects.com.au and hard copies were available at:

  • Council libraries
  • Council Aquatic and Fitness Centres
  • Children’s Service Centres - Earlwood and Hurlstone Park
  • Riverwood Community Centre
