Penrith. Council to oppose decision

Penrith City Council has voted to appeal a recent decision in the Land and Environment Court that could leave the community with a $1.8million bill to provide facilities in a new 71 lot residential development. The recent ruling of the court on development contributions in the Werrington Enterprise Living and Learning (WELL) Precinct means that more than $28,500 per lot will be allocated towards drainage and road works, leaving less than $1500 per lot available to meet the cost of parks, sporting fields, footpaths and other necessary community facilities. “Without an appeal we are facing a potential bill of around $55million to provide future facilities across the whole development,” said Mayor, Greg Davies.
