Director Development And Regulatory Services

Penrith City Council Full Time Permanent 23/04/2021

Penrith is a place of limitless opportunities. Ideally positioned as the gateway to the Greater Blue Mountains World heritage Area, Penrith is located at the intersection of Australia’s most significant future economic corridors, where growth from the east expands west and intercepts growth across the north to south regions. Penrith will be the closest city centre to the Nancy-Bird Walton International Airport with a metro connection from day one of operations. Penrith plays a crucial role in realising the government’s vision for the Western Parkland City, meaning there’s significant investment across our city from a range of industries eager to get involved. Over six billion dollars in DA’s were submitted in the past five years, with over $1 billion projected for 2020-21. Complementing this is Council’s own investment of $300 million into key city-shaping projects across our city (some project funding is from the State and Federal Government). Right now, Penrith is home to 216,000 people, but by 2041 our population is expected to grow to around 370,000. Be part of this transformation…
