Penrith City Council has developed its draft Community Safety Plan 2023-2027 after consultation with the community and stakeholders in 2022.
The plan responds to feedback across three priority areas including building a thriving community, creating safe and welcoming public spaces and developing partnerships for safe communities.
Thank you to everyone who provided feedback during the development of the draft Community Safety Plan. We now invite you to review the final draft of the Plan during our public exhibition phase from 18 September to 29 October 2023.
By doing so, you will help us to ensure that the draft Plan responds to the key safety priorities and includes suitable actions to enhance safety in our community and at home.
This Plan is an important resource to help foster safe, vibrant and welcoming places for the Penrith area. It continues to emphasise the importance of a ‘whole of community’ approach to fostering places where people feel safe and well-connected.
We recognise that everyone has a role to play in supporting the safety of their communities and Council is committed to working together with our community, businesses, services providers and other community partners, in the delivery of this Plan.
Following the public exhibition phase, we will review the feedback and present a final plan to Councillors with a request for adoption. With Council support, the adopted plan will be submitted to the NSW Department of Justice to seek its endorsement.
