Mr Downes, an affected resident and spokesperson for STORC, spoke in opposition to the recommendation, and stated his concerns regarding the uncertainty around the location of the proposed transport corridors.  Mr Downes  stated that the proposal would be contrary to maintaining the semi rural character of the Claremont Meadows/Orchard Hills area.  Mr Downes also expressed his concern that alternate routes do not seem to have been considered for the corridors by TfNSW.

 

406  RESOLVED on the MOTION of Councillor Kevin Crameri OAM seconded Councillor Prue Car that an extension of time be granted to enable the speaker to complete his address, the time being 7:21pm.

Mr Robert Kassouf

 

Item 4 – Proposed Corridors for South West Rail Link Extension and Outer Sydney Orbital (M9)

 

Mr Kassouf, an affected resident and spokesperson for residents of Orchard Hills, spoke against the recommendation, and stated that, due to the corridor proposal, owners of homes in the area will not be able to sell them, in order to move elsewhere.  Mr Kassouf stated that no direct notification of consultation was given to residents of the affected area and that residents had to resort to applying for access to information related to the proposal, as this was not supplied to them.

 

Mr Kassouf concluded by urging Council to withdraw its recommendations toTfNSW and instead make a rational submission, taking into consideration the concerns of the affected residents of Orchard Hills/Claremont Meadows.

 

Mr Owen Rogers

 

Item 6 – “Poppy Park’ Remembrance Planting

 

Mr Rogers,  the applicant’s spokesperson, spoke in support of the recommendation to establish a Poppy Park on an annual basis at Judges Park.  Mr Rogers stated that Remember a Soldier is a non profit organisation whose object is to ensure that every Australian soldier killed in action is remembered.  He stated that the poppies would be placed in the area surrounded by Judges Park, the Penrith Bowling Club and the PCYC property, and indicated that this proposal has been supported by the Penrith RSL.  Mr Rogers advised that the poppies would be manufactured by Thorndale Industries.
