Penrith Council is encouraging people who live, work and play in Penrith to share their thoughts on how they would like the city to develop by participating in an online focus group.
Two online focus groups have already been held that have focused on strengthening community relationships and growing Penrith’s lifestyle.
Feedback and ideas brought up in the sessions will be used to inform the development and delivery of council’s 12-year Community Strategic Plan (CSP).
The next one will be held on October 15 at 11am and will take just one hour. It will focus on understanding the community’s views on the environment, Penrith’s growth and the needs of future residents.
According to Penrith Mayor Ross Fowler OAM, the online focus groups are an opportunity for the council to delve deeper into the issues raised by residents and gain a better understanding of what the community wants and needs for the future.
“So far, our conversations with the community earlier this year told us that safe and efficient roads, affordable housing, access to services, local jobs and the environment are some of the important topics for us to focus on,” Cr Fowler said.
The focus groups provide the council with a safe way to drill into topics and identify community priorities, as well as how to go about fixing them.
Ultimately though, the focus groups are a chance for Penrith residents to share their views and create a road map that will guide council over the next 12 years, which will set the city on the path to becoming Western Sydney’s most liveable city.
