THE COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF HURSTVILLE

MAYORAL MINUTE


Federal Court Proceedings - Sydney (Kingsford-Smith) Airport
- Re-opening of East-West Runway


Council will recall that I submitted a Mayoral Minute to the Meeting held on 13th March, 1996, in relation to the proposed re-opening of the East-West Runway at Sydney (Kingsford-Smith) Airport; wherein I stated in part:-


Council resolved:-



Solicitors Houston Dearn O'Connor acted on behalf of the four Councils and instructed Mr Davison S.C. and Mr Parry of Counsel.

His Honour Mr Justice Lehane handed down his judgement on 28th May, 1996 and, unfortunately, the Councils' Application was dismissed.

Mr Davison S.C. and Mr Parry have advised that in their opinion there are reasonable prospects of success on appeal. I have also taken advice from Council's Solicitors, Deacons Graham & James. I can advise the Council further in Committee of the Whole as to the advices from Senior Counsel and Council's Solicitors. I can also inform Council as to costs to date and likely future costs.

I am advised that Botany, Randwick and Rockdale Councils have agreed to proceed to appeal and on this basis, I have again joined Hurstville City Council as a party to the lodgement of an appeal. The General Manager has instructed Solicitors Houston Dearn O'Connor accordingly.

RECOMMENDATION

It is recommended that:-

(i) Council confirm the action by the Mayor to join Hurstville City Council as a party to the lodgement of an appeal.

(ii) That for the reason that the matter relates to legal proceedings where Council's interests may be prejudiced by publicity, the press and the public be excluded from that part of the Council Meeting, and the question of consideration of advices from Senior Counsel and Council's Solicitors and details as to actual and expected costs, be referred for consideration in Committee of the Whole.
