Penrith City Council
Penrith City Council’s vision is one of a sustainable and prosperous region with a harmony of urban and rural qualities with a strong commitment to environmental protection and enhancement.
It offers both the cosmopolitan and cultural lifestyles of a mature city and the casual character of a rural community.
Our mission is to implement Council’s strategy and program. It will do this through skilled and responsive management, by valuing its staff, partnerships and community involvement, by providing quality customer service and upholding ethical standards and behaviour.
In September 2009 Council adopted the Penrith Inclusion Plan – People with Disability 2009-2013. This new plan builds on the success of the first Disability Action Plan 2003-2006 and highlights the important role of Council as a leader in contributing to a more inclusive and accessible city. The development of the Penrith Inclusion Plan has been guided by the advice and support of Council’s Access Committee. The Inclusion Plan has identified more than eighty actions that will improve access to services, facilities and programs. A feature of the plan is Council will initiate “City Leadership” with strategic partners and the community to implement specific key aspects of the plan. The implementation of the plan will lead to real improvements to the lives of people with disability in all aspects of community life across the city.Web Address: http://www.penrithcity.nsw.gov.au
