PETITION: Stop the Resurrection of Bullsbrook Tip!
Let's Keep Bullsbrook Beautiful!
To the Honourable Speaker and Members of the Legislative Assembly of the Parliament of Western Australia assembled: We, the undersigned, oppose the resurrected proposal to establish a landfill operation at Lot 12 Chittering Road Bullsbrook. The proposed development is disingenuously called a “rehabilitation” project, when in fact the bush located in the area has regenerated over more than two decades. We are concerned that the 80 daily truck movements, the associated dust, noise, and landfill operations will:
- affect road safety on the Chittering Road tourist route, particularly outside our local school and playgroup;
- negatively affect the amenity of homes and properties located near the tip, on Hoad Street, within the buffer zone of the proposed landfill operation, along the truck route, and throughout our town; and
- harm local bushland and threaten native fauna and waterways.
The community and local Government resoundingly demonstrated our opposition to the original landfill project and the State Administrative Tribunal rejected it outright. We again urge all levels of Government to reject this totally inappropriate resurrected proposal.
