What does Public Exhibition mean?

    When Council puts something on public exhibition it means that anyone can look at and comment on it.  By putting our Operational Plan and Fees and Charges on exhibition, we are giving the community the chance to look at them and give us feedback before they’re finalised.  The comments provided by the community help us understand if there is something we need to change before the plans are adopted. 

    Why are these documents important?

    These documents link the community’s long term goals with Council’s plans, policies, services and resources. They are important because they show what Council is doing to make Penrith a better place to live, work and visit. 

    How can I tell Council what I think?

    Please make sure you send through all your comments by Wednesday 6 June 2018. 

    What happens after the public exhibition ends?

    1.  After the public exhibition period ends on Wednesday 6 June, you will no longer be able to comment on the documents. 2.  Council’s Corporate Planning team will go over all the feedback we have received from the community. 3.  Council will review the plans and make any necessary changes to the draft documents. 4.  If you commented on our plans for 2018-19, you’ll receive a reply to your feedback and information about the upcoming Council meeting. 5.  The draft Operational Plan 2018-19 and the proposed Fees and Charges 2018-19 will be reported to Council for adoption on Monday 25 June. The report will include the community feedback received during the public exhibition period and any changes to the documents. The final Operational Plan 2018-19 and the Fees and Charges 2018-19 will be published on Council’s website on July 1 2018.
