The Penrith Green Grid Strategy is part of a new strategic framework being developed by Council to provide direction for future growth in Penrith.
The Strategy puts forward a plan to support the creation of cool and green neighbourhoods and active transport by connecting schools, public transport and town centres to green infrastructure such as green spaces, parks, water ways and bushland.
The Penrith Green Grid Strategy also identifies and addresses challenges which are unique to Penrith including how to increase canopy to reduce heat and retrofit solutions to older suburban areas, as well as those undergoing urban renewal.
Council's new strategic framework consolidates the planning priorities outlined in the Local Strategic Planning Statement and aims to establish a place-based vision for our city.
Funding to develop the Penrith Green Grid Strategy was provided by the NSW Government’s Metropolitan Greenspace Program as a way to improve access to open space and increase liveability in Penrith.
The Penrith Green Grid Strategy builds on existing strategic work already undertaken by Council including strategies for Cooling the City, Sport & Recreation, and Street & Park Tree Management.
Penrith’s Green Grid Strategy was endorsed by Penrith City Council at the Ordinary Meeting on 25 October 2021.
