Help shape Penrith’s future.

There has never been a better time to be in Penrith. Strategically located in Global Sydney and the only city connected by rail to the new Western Sydney International (Nancy-Bird Walton) Airport, the opportunities for growth are boundless. With plenty of land to develop, and billions in infrastructure investment, savvy investors are looking to Penrith to bring their innovative business ideas to life and create more jobs for our residents.

The Thrive Penrith framework developed in 2022 is an overarching vision to connect Council’s Economic Development, Visitor Economy, 24-hour Economy, and Cultural strategies. The draft Economic Development and Visitor Economy strategies are now on public exhibition, and we invite you to share your vision and ideas to build on Penrith’s strengths.

How to have your say

At Council’s Policy Review meeting on 9 October 2023, Council endorsed the Draft Penrith Economic Development Strategy 2023-2031 (EDS 2031) and Draft Penrith Visitor Economy Strategy 2023-2030 (VES 2030) for public exhibition and consultation. We invite you to have your say.
