Revitalise Penrith

Penrith is undergoing a once-in a generation change to become a vibrant, world-class city with quality amenity, connected to a diverse range of opportunities for employment, leisure and lifestyle. Penrith City Council is driving this change by delivering key city-shaping projects to revitalise our city and strengthen our position as an economic and employment hub within Western Sydney.

Here you will find a snapshot of the exciting Council-led projects underway across our city.
