Council works with the community in developing these documents to be sure everyone has the opportunity to have their say about their future. Our
Community Engagement Strategy (pdf 2.9MB) explains how Council engaged with our community and partners to develop the Community Plan. You can also read supporting information:

Community Plan (pdf 7.2MB) identifies our community's long term aspirations for the City - see our Community Plan page for more details.
The Delivery Program is Council's 4 year work program to help implement the Community Plan. Each year we publish the Delivery Program including our 1 year Operational Plan for that financial year, which sets out the services, service activities and specific actions Council will deliver in that year, and the annual budget.
Delivery Program 2017-21, Operational Plan and Fees & Charges 2017-18 on Council's Your Say Penrith website.
The plans will be on public exhibition from 10 May to 7 June 2017, and community feedback is encouraged during the exhibition period. Find out how to have your say by visiting the
Your Say Penrith website.
Resourcing Strategy (pdf 4.4MB) details Council's capacity to manage assets and deliver services over the next 10 years. It has 3 key sections which show how Council will effectively manage its finances, workforce and assets.
We've developed indicators to measure progress towards the outcomes our community wants to achieve. We use performance measures to track our success in achieving what we set out to do within the Delivery Program.
See our Organisational performance page for our annual, half yearly and quarterly reviews.
Many of our strategies and studies (listed below) have now been brought together into the
City Strategy (pdf 3.6MB), adopted by Council on 24 June 2013. The City Strategy helps build a sustainable future for the City and our community, by examining the key issues facing us over the next 10-20 years and outlining how Council will respond. It includes issues
that are not within Council's direct control. The issues and policy responses in the City Strategy inform the Community Plan and Council's 4 year Delivery Program.
