GreensPartyThe Greens are calling on Penrith Council, specifically Councillors Tanya Davies and Prue Guillaume, "to bring community concerns relating to the Luddenham Cemetery proposal before Council and urge Council to provide copies of all material relating to the Luddenham cemetery DA to the action group. They should remind Council, if it is necessary, that Penrith Council have a legal obligation to supply copies of all DA materials and related correspondence to affected residents. There is no question some members of the action group will be affected residents if this application is approved."

Greens Party press release:

The No Cemetery Action Group formed by residents of the Luddenham area have approached Penrith Council several times seeking detailed information about the cemetery DA and so far have been “fobbed off” with various excuses as to why council cannot or will not supply full details. I have met a number of times with members of this group and frankly I am astounded at what appears to be deliberate avoidance by Council Officers to supply information to residents who have a fundamental right to all the information.

I hereby call on Councillors Tanya Davies and Prue Guillaume to bring this matter up before Council and urge Council to provide copies of all material relating to the Luddenham cemetery DA to the action group. They should remind Council, if it is necessary, that Penrith Council have a legal obligation to supply copies of all DA materials and related correspondence to affected residents. There is no question some members of the action group will be affected residents if this application is approved.

Like Ms Davies and Ms Guillaume I am also a candidate for the seat of Mulgoa. Luddenham falls within this electorate and I am not prepared to tolerate rate payers and residents within the electorate being blatantly ignored. I’d like to hear back from either one or both of the two candidates within the next week or so that copies of all information and correspondence relating to DA10/1208 will be provided by Council as requested.
