Mt Druitt - St Mary's Standard (East) - - NEWS - Danielle Jarvis

A COM­MU­NITY meet­ing to dis­cuss the pro­posed waste man­age­ment and trans­fer fa­cil­ity at Ersk­ine Park, or­gan­ised by the Plan­ning As­sess­ment Com­mis­sion, is sched­uled for this month.

The meet­ing will be at 2.30pm at St Marys Leagues Club on Wed­nes­day, Septem­ber 21.

The pro­posed fa­cil­ity has pre­sented a num­ber of is­sues and raised plenty of con­cerns for the sur­round­ing res­i­dents and busi­ness own­ers.

The is­sues in­clude in­creased traf­fic and gen­eral odour emis­sions, which would likely be­come a part of life for nearby home­own­ers.

Although the pro­posed de­vel­op­ment is in its fi­nal stages, a com­mis­sion spokes­woman said if the com­mis­sion con­cluded that the con­cerns about the fa­cil­ity were not prop­erly han­dled, the com­mis­sion could still stop the pro­ject.

“The meet­ing is called so that the com­mu­nity can have the op­por­tu­nity to con­vey their con­cerns at the time,” the spokes­woman said.

“We need to en­sure that ev­ery­thing has been ad­dressed.”

The spokes­woman said the awk­ward tim­ing of the meet­ing – 2.30pm on a Wed- nes­day when peo­ple were ei­ther work­ing or pick­ing up chil­dren from school – was due to the dif­fi­culty of find­ing of a suit­able and avail­able venue.

If you would like to speak at the meet­ing, you will need to lodge a reg­is­tra­tion by 1pm on Mon­day, Septem­ber 19.

You will need to call Philippa Vale on 9383 2115 to reg­is­ter.
