Development and tourism opportunities top of the agenda

Wednesday, 23 September 2015

Penrith Mayor Karen McKeown has met with a delegation from Mentougou District of Beijing and the new owners of Twin Creeks Golf & Country Club to discuss development and tourism opportunities in Penrith.

Councillor McKeown said the meeting was very positive in addressing the growing demand for quality conferencing and accommodation venues.

"Penrith lacks large scale accommodation properties which in turn can affect the City's ability to attract large scale conferences and events," Cr McKeown said.

"The new owners of Twin Creeks Golf & Country Club are interested in developing their property further which may contribute to the availability of quality accommodation and conference facilities in Penrith.

"Council is continuing to open  the door to new projects, capital investment and partnerships to grow our City."
