Residents rubbish landfill proposal
MORE than 150 residents attended a forum to voice their opposition to the proposed Chittering Road landfill.
The forum, which was held last Monday, was hosted by the Bullsbrook Residents and Ratepayers Association and included presentations on the proposal’s road safety, amenity and environmental effects.
Attendees were given the opportunity to express their views and ask questions in front of City of Swan councillors.
Swan Hills MLA Jessica Shaw also spoke at the forum, reaffirming her longstanding opposition the proposal.
“Bullsbrook residents have been fighting the landfill for two years,” Ms Shaw said.
“This proposal poses too many unacceptable safety, amenity and environmental risks to the local Bullsbrook community. It never was, and never will be, appropriate for our area.
“I urge the council to continue to support the people of Bullsbrook and again reject this proposal when they vote on the issue on Wednesday, June 6.”
Bullsbrook Residents and Ratepayers Association president Anne Sibbel said the council needed to listen to the community.
“It’s time for the council to listen to Bullsbrook community’s concerns and once again reject this inappropriate proposal,” she said.
