Op­po­si­tion to land­fill build­ing

The Advocate (Perth) - - NEWS -

A PE­TI­TION with more than 1200 sig­na­tures op­pos­ing a land­fill pro­posal on Chit­ter­ing Road in Bullsbrook has been tabled in State Par­lia­ment.

The City of Swan is set to re­con­sider the Chit­ter­ing Road pro­posal af­ter the State Ad­min­is­tra­tive Tri­bunal re­ferred it back to the coun­cil.

Swan Hills MLA Jes­sica Shaw said the tri­bunal de­ci­sion was frus­trat­ing for the Bullsbrook com­mu­nity, which had op­posed the de­vel­op­ment for more than 18 months.

“160 semi-trailer truck move­ments a day on Chit­ter­ing Road is com­pletely un­ac­cept­able and as I have stated pre­vi­ously, I fully sup­port the City and the coun­cil’s stance to re­ject this pro­posal,” she said.

“I con­tinue to be deeply con­cerned about the im­pacts this land­fill will have on the Bullsbrook com­mu­nity and have been work­ing col­lab­o­ra­tively with the Mem­ber for Moore, Shane Love, to raise the pro­file of this is­sue.

“Road safety is paramount, with the lo­cal school and child­care cen­tre on the pro­posed route.”

Bullsbrook Res­i­dent and Ratepay­ers As­so­ci­a­tion pres­i­dent Anne Sibbel urged the coun­cil to re­ject the pro­posal.
