The Council is looking to engage the services of an individual consultant or consulting firm to develop a new City-wide Cultural Plan. The primary goal of the Cultural Plan is to establish a 10-year cultural strategic plan with specific measures and action items for future cultural development.

The new Cultural Plan will formalise Council’s policy position and provide a strategic and implementation framework for the development of cultural opportunities in Canterbury Bankstown. This will include identifying internal and external resources, priority projects, partnership and funding opportunities.
