The consultation has now resulted in the adoption of the new Penrith branding by the VoP Group and now EDC Executive. Following this the brand will be rolled out across the town on a new suit of signage and street furniture that will be incorporated into the new Booths and New Squares developments.

Overview

The public are invited to say what they think about proposals for a new visual identity and street signage for Penrith. The concepts for the new signage and artwork build on suggestions made by local people to improve links and information between Penrith's existing town centre and new developments such as New Squares and the Booth's supermarket on Brunswick Road.

An exhibition space with examples of the new street signage is being set up outside Penrith Library (Devonshire Arcade) and a drop-in event is being organised in Penrith Library on 7 September between 4.00pm - 8.00pm.

A hard copy information leaflet is available in Penrith Library. This leaflet incorporates a feedback form which can be completed and returned to Eden Area Support Team at the address provided.

An online version of the same leaflet can be accessed below (click the link to 'leaflet').  It is also possible to have a look at the artwork in the online copy of the display boards (link to 'display boards' below) and consider the options before completing the online questionnaire which can be accessed from the 'Give us your Views'  link below.
