Update: 19 June 2017

Over the past couple of months, we have been seeking community feedback to help us deliver quality open space in South Penrith and Jamisontown that meets the needs of the local community.

Community input is an important part of this project and we value your feedback. Council is considering all the information we received during the consultation project, along with all the survey responses received from the community. The project team will keep everyone who has registered their details on the Your Say Penrith project page up to date with the next steps in the process by the end of August.

In the meantime, if you have any questions or comments, please contact us on 4732 8109 or email SPJCC@penrithcity.nsw.gov.au.


The Public Open Space Reinvestment Project is focusing on quality open spaces for our more established neighbourhoods. Council is working with the community to decide if we should consider selling some small parcels of land that provide little recreational value and reinvest some of the money in improving other recreation spaces in their area. The project process includes an assessment of the amount of open space available in a suburb and, more importantly, the quality of local open space.

The pilot project in Erskine Park has already delivered valuable improvements to the quality of local open space, footpaths and public domain in Erskine Park.

We’re now looking at South Penrith and Jamisontown, where Council owns many areas of open space, and where the community has previously told us they would like improvements to some of the parks and recreation spaces.

Before Council decides anything, we want to know what the community thinks. We want to know what open spaces the local community uses, which spaces (if any) they would be willing to trade off for other benefits, and what improvements they would like to see. Community consultation ended on 11 June 2017.
