Penrith Press - - NEWS -

The Fed­eral Gov­ern­ment last week an­nounced the es­tab­lish­ment of a Ci­ties Ref­er­ence Group to help ad­vise on ci­ties pol­icy.

“It will be a valu­able source of ex­per­tise and in­sight for the Gov­ern­ment as we con­tinue to de­liver on the Smart Ci­ties Plan,” Mr Tay­lor said. “Our ci­ties agenda is all about po­si­tion­ing our ci­ties to be the best they can be in the fu­ture.”

The Smart Ci­ties Plan, re­leased last year, sets out a vi­sion for Aus­tralia’s ci­ties based on smart in­vest­ment, pol­icy and tech­nol­ogy

Pen­rith Coun­cil has said the city is ‘well po­si­tioned to pi­lot the Fed­eral Gov­ern­ment’s Smart Ci­ties Plan’. Last year Coun­cil said the north-to-south rail con­nec­tion across Western Syd­ney was vi­tal for pro­duc­tiv­ity and re­al­is­ing the re­gion’s po­ten­tial.
