Waste fa­cil­ity plans re­jected

Comment News (Gosnells) - - News -

AR­MADALE Coun­cil voted unan­i­mously to re­ject plans to de­velop a de­mo­li­tion waste screen­ing and crush­ing fa­cil­ity on Lot 245 Keane Road in Brook­dale af­ter strong com­mu­nity op­po­si­tion.

Coun­cil­lors sided with 395 pe­ti­tion­ers against the pro­posed devel­op­ment by Bow­man and As­so­ci­ates.

The City’s Devel­op­ment and Ser­vices Com­mit­tee found the plans in­ap­pro­pri­ate due to the prox­im­ity of res­i­dents and po­ten­tial risks from han­dling in­dus­trial de­bris, in­clud­ing as­bestos or ma­te­rial con­tam­i­nated with toxic chem­i­cals.

The de­ci­sion came de­spite ap­proval, sub­ject to con­di­tions, from the De­part­ment of En­vi­ron­men­tal Reg­u­la­tion (DER), the City’s Health De­part­ment and ini­tial ap­proval from the Devel­op­ment and Ser­vices com­mit­tee.

The DER and ap­pli­cant will be in­formed by the coun­cil of the de­ci­sion.
