Penrith has been selected as the location of the first Community Cabinet of the Minns Government.
The Community Cabinet meeting will provide a unique opportunity for the Penrith local community to hear directly from the NSW Government’s key decision-makers and offer insights into life in western Sydney.
The meeting will be held on Monday, July 31 at the Joan Sutherland Performing Arts Centre and is open to all residents, business owners and stakeholders of the Penrith area.
“Community Cabinet is a critical forum for us to develop a strong understanding of how to deliver services and projects that meet the needs of communities across the state,” said Premier Chris Minns.
“It has been a high priority for me to re-instate this valuable meeting swiftly since taking government.
“Penrith is only the beginning for us. I plan to hold Community Cabinet meetings regularly throughout the next four years to ensure we are listening to the unique challenges and strengths of communities across NSW.”
Deputy Premier and Londonderry MP Prue Car said it made sense to hold the event in Penrith.
“There is nowhere else in the world quite like western Sydney – it is home to the most incredible, diverse and strong communities,” she said.
“The only way to grasp the culture or demands of the region is to actively listen to the local community on what matters most to them.
“I am thrilled to be inviting the Premier and my fellow Ministers to meet in Penrith for our first Community Cabinet together to ensure our priorities align with the western Sydney community.”
