Cr Eva Campbell and Cr Ashleigh Cagney were absent from this meeting and, because of pecuniary interests around the Orbital, Cr Rob Mills had to leave during this discussion.
The admin of the Outer Sydney Orbital Macarthur Action Group Facebook page, Andrew Simpson, made a heartfelt public address, which he kindly provided. You can read his full address here (pdf).
In the final result, the majority of remaining councillors supported the Council's submission, which also included an additional amendment by the Mayor, Cr Lara Symkowiak, to carve out a separate section that related to the importance of rural land for Camden.
Cr Cindy Cagney and Cr Paul Farrow did not support the submission for different reasons. Cr Cagney was completely opposed to the Orbital going ahead while Cr Farrow asked for an amendment to call on the NSW Government to restart the process again, only this time with greater community involvement.
Along the way we found out that not one State Government Minister had bothered to reply to the Council's request for them to come and talk to the community. I have included a full run down of the discussion, including the answer to the question that provided that information, below based on my notes.
