Proposal announced to transform Penrith into a film production precinct
A proposal has been announced to transform part of Penrith Lakes into a $150 million, 41-hectare film production precinct with public consultation being sought over changes to the State Environmental Planning Policy to pave way for the project.
In addition to a production house for some of the world’s biggest blockbuster films, the amendment also proposes:
- an 18-hole golf course,
- a new heliport with flight path access, and
- the heritage listing of the historic Landers Inn.
If approved, the precinct would include up to 10 production stages, filming tanks, construction and design facilities, and a film school.
NSW Jobs, Investment, and Tourism Minister Stuart Ayres says the venture would be a win for the film industry, Western Sydney and the people of Penrith adding “this is a fantastic result for Penrith that will bring jobs and investment while activating a beautiful part of Western Sydney.
“It would create up to 300 construction jobs over three years and once completed, the site would employ up to 2,000 people on major movie projects.”
Public consultation closes on Sunday 26th September.
