Penrith City Council is inviting the community to share their feedback on the draft St Marys Town Centre Place Plan.

Following extensive community consultation last year, Council adopted its St Marys Town Centre Structure Plan, which established a shared vision to transform St Marys into a vibrant, sustainable, and welcoming strategic centre over the next 20 years.

The St Marys Town Centre Place Plan is a community-led roadmap which outlines actions over the next five years between 2024-2028 to help achieve this long-term vision, with a focus on events, activities, and street and park improvements.

Penrith Mayor Todd Carney thanked the community for its overwhelming response during community consultation to form the draft plan earlier in the year, and now hopes more people will have a say.

“Council heard from more than 540 residents, businesses, community groups, government stakeholders, and allied health professionals when we asked them to help us co-design the draft Place Plan,” Carney said.

“We received lots of great ideas for ways to spruce up the Town Centre, support our local businesses, along with activities and events that will bring the community together.

“Council has listened to this feedback, developed the draft Place Plan which we feel truly reflects the needs and desires of the community, and now we want to make sure residents and local business think we’re on the right track.”
