“As NSW moves to focus on the economic recovery from Covid-19, development and infrastructure projects are going to play a key role in revitalising our economy. We need to integrate quality urban design outcomes as we work towards this”, said Penrith Mayor, Ross Fowler OAM.

“The Masterclass content is a good reminder of our future focus to deliver exceptional liveability outcomes and resilience for our communities.”

Council was delighted by the industry and government response to its Masterclass event, as well as the constructive dialogue that was generated about real-world solutions to urban heat. 

“The Masterclass event brought together over 300 leading built environment professionals to explore innovative heat reduction strategies to help tackle Sydney’s urban heat dilemma,” explained Cr Fowler.

“The time for action is now.  We encourage anyone who wants to learn more about sustainable development to take the time to engage with these materials.”
