Penrith safeguards its future and uniqueness by balancing growth to protect its natural assets.

The need for local jobs and affordable and diverse housing is balanced with the desire to preserve the character and heritage of not only its buildings but also the environment and green spaces throughout the region.

As our population grows, Penrith will see development focused around rail-based centres.

Outside these areas, there will be a defined urban footprint that preserves our City’s natural assets and landscape qualities and helps contribute to the distinctive characteristics of our City.

Balanced growth also means ensuring there is provision for services, infrastructure and facilities to support the growing population, as well as visitors to the region.

Our community has repeatedly said it wants a liveable city, Penrith City Council is committed to delivering this.
