HISTORY OF CAMPBELLTOWN COUNCIL
The area of Campbelltown was first visited by Governor Hunter in 1795, and was explored by Governor Lachlan Macquarie in the late 18th and early 19th centuries.
On 1 December 1820, Governor Macquarie named the area Campbell Town in honour of his wife’s maiden name, with the area later being known simply as Campbelltown.
In 1882, the area was officially proclaimed as the Municipal District of Campbelltown by the Governor of NSW. Nine Aldermen were elected, with John Ahearn elected the first Mayor of Campbelltown.
The Municipal District of Ingleburn was proclaimed in 1896.
Campbelltown Council built a power station to supply electricity to the area, developed the town’s water supply to cater for the growing population and began work on a sewerage system during the 1920-30s.
During the 1940s, there were moves to amalgamate Campbelltown with other local councils in the area. In 1948, Nepean Shire was abolished and split up.
Campbelltown and Ingleburn were joined into one common council (including part of the Nepean Shire) and became known as the Amalgamated Municipality of Campbelltown.
Campbelltown has continued to grow and develop, from 25,000 residents in 1966, to more than 150,000 today. Campbelltown City Council now employs more than 900 staff.
