1.      Staff Planning Seminar
        F98124

In February 2002 Directors and Managers attended a Staff Planning Seminar in Mittagong which
provided an opportunity for staff to focus on issues facing Council in the forthcoming years.

In addition the Forum was used to take advantage of the new ideas and initiatives following the
implementation of the Organisational Review.

It is intended to hold the Councillors Planning Day in November this year prior to the formulation of
the Budget and Management Plan.

Prior to the Planning Day it would be beneficial for Councils Directors and Managers to participate in
a Forum that provides an opportunity for consideration of strategies and ideas to be considered by
Council in November.

The Staff Planning Seminar will provide time to discuss initiatives and programs which can be
considered by Council at the Council Planning Day. The Seminar is also seen as a valuable
element in the development of Councils Management Group.

It is intended, subject to Council approval once again to hold the Seminar at Mittagong on Friday
evening and Saturday morning 18 and 19 October 2002 with a total cost for the 24 participants of
$4,500. Funds are available in the Human Resources Training and Development Budget.

Officer’s Recommendation:

That Council approve the Staff Seminar to be held on the 18 and 19 October 2002 at a cost of
$4,500.

2.      Council Elections
        F104535

        Attachment           Circular 2/43 from the Department of Local Government

The Department of Local Government has formally advised Council that the Local Government
Regulations have been changed by The Local Government (Elections) Amendment Regulation
2002, in particular in regard to the grouping of candidates at Local Government Elections.

The Amendments do not apply until 1 June 2003 but will apply to the Local Government Elections
which will be held on 13 September 2003. Attached for Council’s information is a copy of the
Circular which outlines that two or more nominated Councillors may apply to have their names
included in a ballot paper in group voting squares and will only be available where more than one
group has requested a group voting square and group voting will be allowed ‘above the line’.
Deputy General Manager;s Report                                                                Page 3

Electors voting ‘above the line’ may number 1 or more group voting squares and this Amendment
also replaces the ability of a group to determine how preferences will be distributed between the
group and other groups by way of group voting tickets which will no longer apply.

Voting ‘below the line’ has been altered and is submitted for Council’s information. Council’s
attention is also brought to Circular 10 of 2002 issued on 26 February 2002 which outlines the
Amendments to the Act in regard to the registration of political parties.

Officer’s Recommendation:

That the information be received and noted.

3.      Lucas Heights Nuclear Reactor
        F19237

        Attachment           Letter from Local Government Association of NSW

At the Council meeting on 2 July 2002 Council resolved to call on the LGSA (now Lgov) to adopt a
similar position to that taken by Council and advised the Premier that we offer our full support to any
measures his Government takes as far as abandonment of the plans to construct a new nuclear
reactor at Lucas Heights.

The President of Lgov has now written to Council (copy attached) indicating that he shares
Council’s concerns regarding the risk to the community of constructing a new nuclear reactor at
Lucas Heights, however he suggests that our cause may be better served by raising the issue as a
Notice of Motion at the Local Government Conference shortly to be held at Broken Hill. This would
obviously enable debate on the matter and if the motion is successful then the full weight of Local
Government across New South Wales could be brought to bear in an attempt to have this project
abandoned.

The submission of a Notice of Motion is supported.

Officer’s Recommendation:

That Council submit a Notice of Motion to the forthcoming Annual Conference of Lgov to be held at
Broken Hill on 26-30 October 2002 in the following terms:

1.   That Council calls on the Federal Government to abandon plans to construct a new nuclear
     reactor at Lucas Heights because of the unacceptable risks posed to the people of Southern
     Sydney by the recent discovery of an earthquake fault line directly below the existing facility.

2.   That Lgov advise the Premier the Hon Mr Bob Carr that Council offers their full support to any
     measures his Government may take to force the abandonment of this project in its present
     location.
Deputy General Manager;s Report                                                                Page 4

3.   That Lgov call on the Federal Government to urgently conduct an independent public enquiry
     into the adequacy of the risk assessment in both the EIS for the new nuclear reactor and its
     licence application.

4.      2001/2002 Financial Statements
        F21044

In accordance with Section 413 of the Local Government Act 1993 Council must prepare financial
reports for each year and refer these accounts to audit as soon as practicable after their completion.

Section 416 of the Local Government Act 1993 states that the Council is required to prepare and
have audited the financial reports for the previous period within a four month time frame after the
completion of the previous year.

Section 428 (2) (a) requires financial reports to be included in Councils Annual Report. The Local
Government Code of Accounting Practice also requires the preparation of Special Purpose
Financial Reports which are required to be referred to audit within this four month period.

Council has completed preliminary work and prepared the 2001/2002 financial reports and Special
Purposes Financial Reports resulting in a preliminary unaudited surplus of $493,506 which
increases the current level of working funds to $2,783,080.

This surplus is preliminary and Council is awaiting actuarial advice in relation to current Workers
Compensation claims. Council has also requested the Statewide Mutual Insurance Limited to
provide information relating to Councils exposure in the losses incurred by the Mutual from the HIH
Insurance collapse and claims incurred in the 2001/2002 insurance year.

The implications of these two matters should not affect Councils funding surplus. Workers
Compensation being funded through restricted funds, however the Statewide Mutual liability may
need to form part of Councils liabilities in which case would affect Councils surplus or alternatively
may be required to be noted as a contingent liability. The treatment of these issues will be
discussed with Councils external auditor.

Discussions have taken place with Councils external auditors Alan Morse & Co who will commence
the audit during the week commencing 23 September 2002. A detailed presentation and further
information will be presented on the end of year audited financial result at Councils Annual General
Meeting to be held after the completion of audit.

Officer’s Recommendation:

That Council refer the 2001/2002 Financial Statements and Special Purpose Financial Reports to
Councils external auditor Alan Morse & Co for audit.

3.        Cambridge Avenue, Glenfield – City Entrance Works
          F10023
Draft landscaping plans have been developed for the northern entry area to Campbelltown City
which involves a staged implementation of landscaping with a particular focus at the intersection of
Cambridge Avenue and Canterbury Roads and adjacent area.

Funding of $5,000 is set aside from the Electricity Authority (Pacific Power) to landscape around the
towers. $20,000 is carried over from 2001-2002 budget from funds transferred (resolution of
Council) from the tree restoration issue in the Industrial area of Ingleburn.

In combination of these existing funds together proposed specific additional funds in the 2002 –
2003 budget. It is expected that initial works identified on the draft program presented will be
undertaken in the current financial year.

In addition, to extend the value of the implementation works, some aspects/stages of the proposed
works are being considered for part of the Work for the Dole program.

The first stage of the landscape works are being marked out at present and the initial ground
preparation works were commenced in July 2002. Following these initial ground preparation works
and soil improvements, mulching (stored onsite) and planting will proceed. The Roads and Traffic
Authority (RTA) is being consulted regarding the planting of the central island (this is a later stage)
and for their approval.

Children's Book Week

Campbelltown City Library Service celebrated Children's Book Week from 17-23 August 2002.

Australian Children’s Book Week is celebrated every year in libraries and schools around Australia.
One of the highlights of the week is the announcement by The Children’s Book Council of Australia
of the winners of the Australian Children’s Book of the Year Awards.

The theme for this year’s Children’s Book Week is A Bookfeast. Campbelltown City Library Service
celebrated throughout the week with displays in all library branches and reading of award winning
picture books at library story-time sessions. The HJ Daley Central Library held an after school
activity session on Wednesday 21 August at 4pm at which children took part in a “feast” of stories,
face painting and craft activities. Attendance at this event was free of charge.

National Simultaneous Storytime

In 2001 the Australian Library & Information Association initiated the inaugural National
Simultaneous Storytime. The event invited all public libraries, primary and pre-schools and early
childhood centres around Australia to participate in a storytime in which a selected Australian
children’s story was read at the same time around the country. Following the enormous success of
the 2001 event, National Simultaneous Storytime will be held in 2002 on 4 September at 11am
AEST.

The aim of the event is to promote public library services and the value of books and reading, by
engaging young people in storytime - one of our most popular activities. The story selected is Mrs
Wilkinson’s Chooks by Australian author, Leone Peguero. This year’s event is scheduled during
Literacy Week and will highlight the valuable role public libraries play in stimulating literacy.

Campbelltown City Library Service will be participating in National Simultaneous Storytime 2002 at
all branches of the library.

Dear Sir


1.         CERES Macarthur Project
           F101179

Background

The CERES Macarthur project is auspiced by the MACROC (Macarthur Regional Organisation of
Councils) Environmental Taskforce. The CERES Interim Management Committee has been working
to develop the project over a period of approximately 18 months.

The CERES Interim Management Committee was established to steer the project during its early
stages and includes representatives from the MACROC Councils and key community organisations
from the Macarthur Region. The Committee was formerly chaired by the Executive Officer of
MACROC, Denise McGrath until her recent resignation. Following the resignation of the
chairperson, MACROC appointed Council’s Manager Waste and Recycling Services, Ms Bindu
Philip to act as the chair of the Interim Management Committee meetings until the vacancy at
MACROC was filled.

However, the issue of MACROC and Council involvement within the Interim Management
Committee was raised at its meetings in July and August 2002. It was suggested that there should
be greater community involvement in the Interim Management Committee and the immediate
management of the CERES Macarthur Project.

In particular, at the August 2002 meeting of the Interim Management Committee a community
member, who is currently on maternity leave from Resource NSW (and previously from Macarthur
Waste Board) was nominated to the position of chairperson of the CERES Macarthur Interim
Management Committee.          This nomination was immediately accepted by the community
representative, who then sought assistance from MACROC and/or Campbelltown City Council to
take minutes at future Interim Management Committee meetings.

The current chairperson declined to accept the nomination and it was decided that Council staff
would continue to act on behalf of MACROC as the interim chairperson until the success of the
Sustainable Regions funding is known.

Sustainable Regions Funding

Since the appointment of Bindu Philip as the chairperson of the Committee, Council staff have taken
a proactive approach to the CERES Macarthur Project and facilitated the application for funding with
the Department of Transport and Regional Services’ Sustainable Regions Program.




This is Page No            of the Minutes of the Ordinary Meeting of the Campbelltown City
Council held on 3 September 2002.

. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . General Manager   . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . Chairperson.
Director Planning and Environment Report                                                                              Page 15

The application for funding was made by Campbelltown and Camden Councils on behalf of the
CERES Macarthur project. The initial application for funding successfully passed the first round of
funding approval, and the success of this final funding application will be known by late September
2002.

It is considered that the likelihood of receiving funding from the abovementioned program is high.
As the Sustainable Regions funding was sought by Campbelltown and Camden Councils on behalf
of the CERES Macarthur Interim Management Committee, it can be expected that the Department
of Transport and Regional Services will expect the Councils to retain management, fiscal and
strategic responsibilities for the project in the short term.

It is therefore essential that Campbelltown and Camden Councils, through MACROC, determine the
organisational structure of the final management committee and formalise the management
structure of the CERES Macarthur project before allowing chairmanship of the Committee to pass to
a community representative (if appropriate). This responsibility includes the formal registration of
the organisation, deciding on the model of business governance to be implemented within the
project, and overseeing the appointment of staff.

CERES Philosophy

CERES will be a facility focused on community and school education regarding environmental
awareness and sustainability. As an organisation it will demonstrate a commitment to the
environmental, social and economic principles. It will generate income from the provision of ethical
products and educational services. It will establish itself as a leader in its field and as a peak service
body of this nature for the Macarthur Region.

CERES Macarthur will be located close to the boundary between the Camden and Campbelltown
local government areas, making it a truly regionally focused Sustainability Centre. The Interim
Management Committee is currently reviewing the available sites and a site will be selected shortly.

It is planned that the land upon which the CERES will exist will be leased from the hosting
organisation in a mutually beneficial, long term, commercial tenancy agreement. This tenancy will
recognise the benefits to both organisations of a positive, symbiotic relationship that will attract more
visitors from both within and outside of the Macarthur region to the benefit of both organisations.

The core activities of CERES will be the provision of goods, services, educational activities and
facilities to promote a cultural shift in Macarthur towards being a more sustainable region. This will
include retail, training, consulting and other services as the organisation builds its capacity to
provide such services.

In the initial stages the focus will be on defining a staged design and implementation plan for
creating the facilities within the physical site and also on developing and instigating effective group
processes capable of sustaining the organisation as a community based sustainability centre.

Future Management Committee

The draft business plan, submitted as part of the Sustainable Regions finding application, identified
the CERES organisation to operate as an incorporated, not for profit, community organisation. It
was proposed that this organisation will take strategic direction from a Management Committee and
be managed on a day-to-day basis by a Program Manager appointed for this purpose. The
organisation will seek Registered Charity status to enable it to receive tax-deductible donations.

Membership of the Management Committee should be limited to those able to manage fiscal and
strategic responsibility. Community involvement could be facilitated through a Steering Committee
with the majority of its members elected from the community. These members could be elected
through public advertisement or a General Meeting. The Steering Committee and the Program
Manager could report to the Management Committee with clear linkages between the Program
Manager and the Steering Committee. The Program Manager should be a member of the Steering
Committee and participate in sub-committees reporting to the Steering Committee, to ensure that
there is transparent communication between CERES staff and community representatives.

Officer’s Recommendation:

1.     That Council, in conjunction with Camden Council and through MACROC, determine an
       appropriate governance model for the organisation immediately after the Sustainable Regions
       funding becomes available, should the application be successful.

2.     That Council, in conjunction with Camden Council and through MACROC, seek Registered
       Charity status for the CERES Macarthur Project, should the application for Sustainable
       Regions Funding be successful.

3.     That Council, in conjunction with Camden Council and through MACROC, determine the
       future level of Council representation and involvement on the CERES Macarthur Management
       Committee.

4.     That Council, in conjunction with Camden Council, request MACROC to notify the Interim
       Management Committee of the above arrangements, the extent of the Councils’ continuing
       involvement in the project and the Councils’ intention to ensure the proper establishment of
       the permanent management committee.

2.        Item 2.2 of Planning and Building Committee 6 August 2002
          Development application for the erection of a factory building for the
          purposes of polishing metal products
          Lot A DP295900, No. 10 Liverpool Street, Ingleburn
           F105686 (F383/2002)

On 6 August 2002, Council’s Planning and Building Committee considered a development
application for an industrial factory building at 10 Liverpool Street, Ingleburn.

The report before the Committee recommended refusal of the application, based partly on the
opinion that the development would not promote or co-ordinate the orderly and economic use and
development of the land. The applicant and the applicant’s town planning consultant addressed the
Committee in support of the application. There were no objectors to the development.

The recommendation of the Committee was:

         “That the site of this application and the site currently being used by the applicant be listed
         for inspection on the first available inspection evening.”

The Committee’s recommendation was carried at Council’s Ordinary Meeting on 13 August 2002.

Following Council’s decision, the applicant has formally withdrawn the development application and
has had preliminary discussions with Council’s staff with a view to lodging a new development
application for a ‘garage’ on the land. The property is currently used for residential purposes and
does not contain a garage. It is understood that the owner’s intention is to use the garage to
accommodate his vehicles and to carry out his business activities that are presently carried out in a
nearby premises.

Upon preliminary assessment, it is considered that the new proposal would not have the same
adverse impacts as the original application and that subject to no objections being received, it is
likely that the application could be supported. Had the new proposal been lodged in the first
instance, the application would likely have been determined under delegated authority.

Officer’s Recommendation:

That Council rescind its resolution to inspect 10 Liverpool Street, Ingleburn, as the relevant
development application has been withdrawn.

Council Meeting 3 September 2002 (Kolkman/Rule)

That the Officer’s recommendation be adopted.

Council Resolution Minute Number 193

That the Officer’s recommendation be adopted.
