Consultation has concluded

Council has developed a draft Resilient Penrith Action Plan that is aligned with the Resilient Sydney Strategy 2018 to demonstrate our commitment to building a more resilient City and community.

It aims to enhance the capability of Council and the community to better prepare for, respond and adapt to, and cope in the face of major shocks such as disasters and extreme weather events and ongoing stresses that impact on our way of life.

The Resilient Penrith Action Plan is needed to ensure we are addressing present and future shocks and stresses and taking proactive action; including identifying our vulnerable communities, increasing knowledge and preparedness for natural disasters and extreme weather events, enhancing access to community spaces and services, building community connections, advocating for sustainable urban planning, and implementing greening and cooling our city initiatives to enhance the resilience of Penrith now and over the longer-term.

Communities with a higher level of resilience have a greater capacity to withstand shocks and stresses and can recover more quickly.

Council and the community must be prepared to face challenges together, to adapt together and to respond and recover together to form a stronger and more resilient community.
