Guide to the Environmental Impact Statement

The State Significant Development Application (SSDA) and supporting Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for the Penrith Stadium redevelopment is on public exhibition until 25 June 2024. 

The community is invited to have their say.

What is the EIS?

Infrastructure NSW is committed to minimising negative impacts on communities and the environment.  

We have prepared an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) to assess the potential environmental, economic, and social impacts of the Penrith Stadium project.  

The EIS describes how impacts have been avoided and appropriate mitigation measures developed to manage these impacts. 

The EIS was lodged with the Department of Planning, Housing and Infrastructure and will be on public exhibition from 29 May to 25 June 2024. 

Approval from the Minister for Planning is required before Infrastructure NSW can proceed with the project.  

How to make a submission

Feedback during the public exhibition period should be provided directly to the Department of Planning, Housing and Infrastructure by making a submission through the Major Projects planning portal by 25 June 2024.

We continue to listen

The community has been actively involved in shaping the stadium design. During community consultation, we spoke to people across the project area to understand their ideas, issues and concerns to reduce project impacts.

Your feedback has been analysed reviewed and incorporated into the EIS, and we will continue to carefully consider this feedback through the ongoing design development process.

We're here to help

Community consultation plays a crucial role in the planning process, ensuring early identification of potential impacts.  

We are dedicated to supporting the community in understanding the EIS and accessing relevant information.

Next steps

After public exhibition, the Department of Planning, Housing and Infrastructure (DPHI) may request a Response to Submissions (RTS) report. In that case, we will report back on feedback received and outline how feedback has been considered. The RTS will be made available to the public.  

Following that, the next step in the planning process is for DPHI to assess our application and make a recommendation to the Minister for Planning about whether the application should be approved and any conditions that should be applied to the development.   

Procurement of a construction contractor has started.  Subject to planning approval, early works is expected to begin towards the end of this year.    

A timeline of the project is available.
