        Community Consultative Committee    (SU20536)
Report of Manager Administration & Information Technology (BC) 5/5/04

PRECIS
At the Council meeting of 7 April 2004, Council elected its Councillor representatives to a
number of Committees or affiliated bodies that operate independently of Council.

However, the Dendrobium Mine Community Consultative Committee was overlooked
and is now submitted for consideration.

RECOMMENDATION
Council nominate its representative to the Denrobium Mine Community
Consultative Committee.


BACKGROUND
In 2001 one of the conditions of the approval for the Dendrobium Mine project required
the applicant, BHP Billiton, to establish a Community Consultative Committee.

This Committee comprises –

• Two (2) representatives of the applicant
• One (1) representative from each Council, i.e. Wollongong, Wingecarribee and
  Wollondilly Councils
• Two (2) representatives from a recognised environmental group
• Four (4) community representatives

The role of the Committee is to monitor compliance with the conditions of consent and
other matters relevant to the mine during the term of the consent.

The Committee meets approximately every two (2) months at the Dendrobium Mine site
at Mt Kembla at 6.30 pm on a Thursday evening.

For the information of Councillors, on 7 April 2004 Council elected Councillors Kent and
Anthony to the Dendrobium Community Enhancement Program Management
Committee which comprises one (1) Councillor from Ward 4 and one (1) Councillor from
Ward 5.
