THE LET­TER OF THE WEEK

Mt Druitt - St Mary's Standard (East) - - YOUR SAY -

DEAR Min­is­ter Rob Stokes (pic­tured),

I live less than 1km from this pro­posed in­cin­er­a­tor. I put in a sub­mis­sion last year

I am ask­ing you don’t al­low this to go ahead. I don’t want my fam­ily to be sub­jected to toxic emis­sions that we won’t know about. I mean, the com­pany will be re­spon­si­ble for mon­i­tor­ing emis­sions and waste from the ash. I don’t have faith it will do this with the com­mu­nity’s best in­ter­ests … they will take into ac­count the best in­ter­ests of their busi­ness.

When we built our house in 1989, we never imag­ined the Pi­o­neer Quarry would even­tu­ally be­come a site for burn­ing of rub­bish. The quarry was sup­posed to be filled with non pu­tresci­ble rub­bish and in 20-30 years time be re­me­di­ated into a park. So you can imag­ine how dis­ap­pointed I am at the prospect of this site hav­ing an in­cin­er­a­tor that is the largest of its kind in the world. There are too many houses here and it should not be any where near res­i­den­tial ar­eas. Why can’t this be moved to the coun­try where there is no hous­ing around for at least 50km? I hope you can help me and my fam­ily and all of our com­mu­nity by not ap­prov­ing this. Kerri Brad­bury, Minchinbury
