2. That the Council writes to Minister Toole and to Transport for NSW Director West, Alistair Lunn and request the Medlow Bath Highway duplication consultation period be extended beyond 15 August but at least one month or as long as needed so that the Forums can be run face to face in small groups with social distancing;

Upon being PUT to the Meeting, the MOTION was CARRIED, the vote being UNANIMOUS.
