Applications are now open for community groups and businesses to secure a regular spot in a community centre or hall for 2020 and 2021 calendar years.

Penrith Mayor Ross Fowler OAM said the city boasted a number of premier venues for hire, with most facilities offering air-conditioning.

“It’s great that Council can support a lively and close-knit community by providing affordable hire of local facilities,” Cr Fowler said.

This year, almost 200 groups used Council facilities, including playgroups, dance groups, youth activities and seniors groups.

With some 40 community facilities across Penrith available for hire including the Jordan Springs Community Hub and Thornton Community Centre, community groups can nominate their preferred regular meeting space for up to two years. Local businesses may also utilise facilities offering affordable office and meeting space.

There are a range of spaces available to suit small and large activities and new groups are always welcome to book. Check out the features on our website at penrith.city/halls

Express your interest now in hiring a facility for up to two years. Applications are open between 26 August and 20 September 2019. An application form can be downloaded from Council’s website at penrith.city/hallhire or by contacting the Neighbourhood Facilities team on 4732 8021 or This email address is being protected from spambots.

Where multiple groups apply to use the same facility, priority will be given to the groups that best demonstrate a local need for their activity. Groups interested in hiring facilities managed by a volunteer committee will be referred to the relevant centre.
