Com­mu­nity win over land­fill

The Advocate (Perth) - - FRONT PAGE -

CITY of Swan coun­cil­lors have re­fused an ap­pli­ca­tion for a land­fill site in Bulls­brook after sig­nif­i­cant com­mu­nity concern.

Coun­cil­lor David McDon­nell put for­ward an al­ter­na­tive mo­tion at Wed­nes­day night’s coun­cil meet­ing that the coun­cil refuse the ap­pli­ca­tion be­cause it would ad­versely af­fect the amenity of the ad­join­ing res­i­den­tial area of Bulls­brook, would af­fect the func­tion of Chittering Road and com­pro­mise safety for cy­clists.

More than 1300 res­i­dents signed a pe­ti­tion to the coun­cil against the pro­posal in March 2017.

An­other pe­ti­tion, this one with 1200 sig­na­tures, was pre­sented to the Leg­isla­tive Coun­cil in May 2018.

The mat­ter will now be sent back to the State Ad­min­is­tra­tive Tri­bunal on June 15.
