Council endorses St Marys Town Centre Place Plan 

Penrith City Council’s plans for the future of St Marys have taken another exciting step forward with the St Marys Town Centre Place Plan finalised. 

At the April Ordinary Meeting held on 29 April, Council endorsed the Place Plan which is a community-led roadmap outlining 23 actions over the next five years to transform the Town Centre through events, activities, public space improvements, and other projects.  

The Place Plan supports the long-term vision established in the St Marys Town Centre Structure Plan to create a vibrant, sustainable, authentic, and welcoming strategic centre over the next 20 years. 

Penrith Mayor Todd Carney said he is looking forward to seeing the Place Plan implemented to help prepare and support the local community for the changes coming to St Marys. 

“The Place Plan will ensure we’re in the best position to make the most of this transformation by creating an attractive Town Centre that draws in the community, businesses and visitors,” Cr Carney said. 

“Council is already getting started on carrying out the Place Plan’s actions with new events and activities which celebrate the diversity and unique stories of the St Marys community, like the recent Culture Fusion festival.  

“We’ve also recently revitalised the St Marys Community Centre and will create a new green heart for the Town Centre with the delivery of St Marys Central Park. 

“Thank you to the more than 500 community members, businesses and groups who shared their ideas and feedback to help bring this Place Plan to life.”
