Penrith City Council will demolish the old Community Connections Building on Henry Street that was damaged by fire in 2021.

The building, which housed a range of community groups and businesses at the time, has been unhabitable since the blaze.

It has remained abandoned ever since.

Due to the extensive structural damage, Council says the safest option is to demolish the building with works commencing this week until the end of September 2024.

To facilitate the demolition of the building, 10 car spaces at Allen Place are temporarily closed until the end of September 2024 for the storage of construction materials.

Council says it will assess future opportunities for the site once demolition is complete.
