Res­i­dents rub­bish landfill pro­posal

The Advocate (Perth) - - NEWS -

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.
