“The Local Strategic Planning Statement (LSPS), it has been out for public comment and we are in the process of taking the community’s opinions on board.”

Penrith Council City Planning Manager Natasha Borgia says the LSPS clearly sets out how the Council intends to take a strategic and mindful approach to creating a balanced city.

“Council has worked hard to ensure the LSPS focuses on what matters most to our community: better transport options and jobs close to home.

“Our intention is to work collaboratively and in a coordinated way with all levels of government to deliver vibrant and connected communities,” she said.
