Penrith City Council’s draft Local Strategic Planning Statement (LSPS) is now on Public Exhibition. The LSPS describes the vision and priorities for land use across Penrith City for the next 20 years.

Penrith Mayor Ross Fowler OAM said the LSPS is the critical step in formalising Penrith’s plans for the future.

“The LSPS brings together the priorities identified at state, regional, district and local levels, and provides important local community context to the planning actions and priorities for Penrith’s future,” Cr Fowler said.

“This draft report incorporates feedback from recent community engagement including our Community Plan, Community Panel and Customer Service surveys.”

“It is important that the community have a voice in helping shape key strategic documents like the LSPS and while on exhibition, we encourage feedback to make sure we are meeting the community’s expectations for the future of Penrith.”

“The LSPS is an evolving document that will be regularly reviewed and updated as our community’s needs and priorities change,” Cr Fowler concluded.
