Penrith. Future of regional city

As a regional city, Penrith is expected to be a focal point for regional transport, jobs and services, according to Penrith City Council. As the principal gateway to Sydney from Western NSW, and geographically well positioned to service both the North West and South West Growth Centres, the city’s catchment could extend to more than 900,000 people over the next two decades. “To be a sustainable region, our employment base also needs to diversify so that our current reliance on manufacturing is strengthened by growth in other sectors. The region needs to focus on promoting the industries involved in health and wellbeing, logistics, sustainability, arts/culture and communication, and innovation in manufacturing,” council said.
