Penrith Night Time Economy Study and Strategy
Penrith Progression identified the creation of an evening economy as an important element in the revitalisation of the Penrith City Centre. Economic planning consultants Urbis Pty Ltd worked with Council to find out how the night time economy works, how big it is and what changes could be made to make it better.

Penrith Progression began as an initiative of Penrith City Council and the Penrith Business Alliance, to transform the City Centre and deliver jobs for the future.
A process of collaborative discovery, it identified new economic, social and environmental drivers, addressed barriers to investment, and identified catalyst projects to revitalise the city.
In February 2015 – following 12 months collaboration with investors, landowners, community and others - the Penrith Progression A Plan for Action was launched. It has the potential to bring 10,000 jobs and 5,000 dwellings to the City Centre.
Through investment, development and business growth, it will help meet the 2031 target of 45,000+ new jobs in the City.
