Update 30 August 2018


South Penrith and Jamisontown

Following on from the initial community consultation conducted in South Penrith and Jamisontown in April to June 2017, Council has been analysing the feedback provided by the community about the open spaces within these neighbourhoods.

Council have looked at all the comments provided in regards to the underutilised parcels of Council owned land and have clearly understood the message received about the importance of green space to the local residents.

Next Steps

We are now going through the next phase of the process, summarising all the feedback provided by the local community and spending time to analyse what the residents of South Penrith and Jamisontown are wanting to see in their local open space networks.

This process will also involve visiting the open spaces in South Penrith and Jamisontown and reassessing the suitability of the sites to identify which will have value for improvement and suggest those that could be re-purposed.

The next phase of community consultation will provide the community with the opportunity to provide feedback on the suburb Open Space Masterplan Reports and the suggested improvements to open space across the suburb. This next phase of the project is dependent on the finalisation as well as the outcomes of the Sport, Recreation, Play and Open Space Strategy which is currently under development by Council.

We will continue to keep everyone who registered their details on the Your Say Penrith project page up to date, as well as posting any further updates on this page.

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


About the Project

The Public Open Space Reinvestment Project is focusing on delivering quality open spaces for our more established neighbourhoods. Council is working with the community to decide how the open space network within established suburbs can be improved and what underutilised parcels of land that provide little recreational value can be divested to fund these improvements.

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.
