Penndel is a borough in Bucks County, Pennsylvania, United States. The population was 2,420 at the 2000 census.

Penndel has been greatly affected by suburban decay, as much of the development occurred in the sixties or before. The commercial strip along Business Route 1 is the worst of it, while the residential areas are still in good shape. Many redevelopment plans are the process, since the commercial area has an 80% vacancy rate. These plans cannot begin until the borough figures out a plan for their significant debt. In late 2006 and early 2007, Penndel suggested getting rid of their police force, relying on the nearby Langhorne Borough police, and the always present Middletown Township police. This would cut a large amount of money from their yearly spendings. Also, at the end of 2006, a proposed tax bill was presented. 1% earned income tax for Penndel, and Neshaminy SChool District, on top of that, proposed a 1/2% earned income tax. This would be an additional taxation to the residents, who already pay $52/year if they work in Middletown Township.

Penndel has been in the local news a lot recently due to the many drug busts in apartment complexes there. This is due to many drug lords from Trenton, New Jersey coming over for cheaper living, but more expensive clientele. However, many other people from Trenton have come to Penndel, significantly of the African American race, and their population has boomed.
