Penrith receives $152 million in funding for City shaping projects

Penrith City Council has secured $152 million in funding for several City-shaping projects through the NSW Government's $5 billion WestInvest program. An indoor multi-sports arena, 21 City-wide playspace upgrades, and a nursery upgrade and Cumberland Plain improvement project are among the eight successful projects which will help see Council realise its vision of transforming Penrith into one of the state’s most liveable cities.

Penrith Mayor Tricia Hitchen said these projects will deliver critical infrastructure to support the Penrith community’s needs now and into the future.

“We are undergoing a time of significant change and population growth in the Penrith Local Government Area with the development of the Western Sydney International Airport and the opportunities this will bring to our region,” Cr Hitchen said.

“Coupled with the almost $30 million of WestInvest funding we secured last year, the funding announced today will help bring to life projects which will prepare us for this change, and transform Penrith into Western Sydney’s most desirable city for residents and visitors alike.”

“We thank the NSW Government for recognising the importance of these projects and the significant social and economic benefits they will deliver to the area.”

Greening our City

As temperatures remain warm, Penrith Council is planting trees at two of the City’s popular parklands, Melaleuca Park and Jamison Park.
By strengthening shade and canopy cover to adapt to changing climate conditions, we’re making sure that these recreation spaces will remain accessible into the future, so residents can continue enjoying an active lifestyle.
Planting trees is a key approach in Council’s Cooling the City Strategy and will reduce the impact of urban heat on the community.
