Parking is a particular concern for Penrith residents - if you are visiting by car, you will need to pick up a parking disc from a nearby shop straight away if you park on street in the centre of town.
There are many opportunities to get involved in Penrith life, such as joining clubs and volunteering. If you feel inspired, pen us a poem, send in a painting or poem - and let us know so we can put it online here.
The historic market town of Penrith is the shopping, business and social centre of Eden District - with easy access to the beautiful Eden Valley and the Lake District.
Penrith is a vibrant community with much to offer visitors and lots going on locally. There are many independent shops in the town centre and most tastes are catered for by cafés, restaurants, pubs and other evening entertainments.
As residents of Penrith, we can all think of things we like about our town and things we’d like to change and improve. Penrith Partnership is gathering the views of local people and organisations, to create a ‘Community Plan’ for Penrith – and we need to hear from you.
Households in Penrith will soon get a short survey in the post, so that you can tell us about the changes in the town that would make the most difference for you. You can also complete the survey online.
The results of the survey and other consultation we’ve done will be used to create the Penrith Community Plan. It will record what local residents and community groups want to change about the town. And, most importantly, it will also set out how we can work together to make those changes happen.
