Council’s draft Operational Plan, Fees and Charges open to feedback

Wednesday, 5 May 2021

Penrith City Council is asking the community for feedback on its Draft Delivery Program (2017-22) & Draft 2021-22 Operational Plan (including Draft 2021-22 Fees & Charges) which contains planned works, budget, fees and charges for the next 12 months.

The Draft Operational Plan is the final instalment of Council’s 5-year Delivery Program (2017-22) and contains specific actions for 2021-22 that aim to continue its effective service delivery and progress.

Penrith Mayor Karen McKeown OAM said the draft plans have been developed to reflect the priorities and direction established through engagement with Councillors and the community.

“The Delivery Program reflects Council’s commitment to effective service delivery and financial responsibility whilst managing growth,” Cr McKeown said.

“The previous 12 months have been quite extraordinary and Council’s response to residents, business and community groups has enabled Penrith to bounce back from the pandemic. Now we must look forward as we continue to deliver on infrastructure, recreation and services for our community.”

“Our budget of $307.7 million for the coming financial year will not only keep our services running smoothly but will stimulate our local economy,” Cr McKeown said.

There are a number of ways the community can have their say on our plans and proposed fees and charges. We are receiving feedback until Monday 31 May via:

  • Online survey at: yoursaypenrith.com.au/draft-operational-plan-2021-22
  • Email to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
  • Letter to the General Manager (Attention: Corporate Planning Team), Penrith City Council, PO Box 60, Penrith NSW 2751

Council will consider each and every submission received on the draft documents before they are finalised and reported to Council’s Ordinary Meeting on 28 June.
