ISCCC ASTOUNDED THAT THE ACT GOVERNMENT ACCEPTED CRS WASTE FACILITY EIS

ISCCC ASTOUNDED THAT THE ACT GOVERNMENT ACCEPTED CRS WASTE FACILITY EIS

In response to the ACT Government advice on 3 July that it had accepted the EIS for the CRS waste facility in Ipswich Street, Fyshwick, paving the way for CRS to lodge a development application, the ISCCC calls on the ACT Government to:

  1. Establish an air quality monitoring station in Fyshwick.
  2. Consider the cumulative impact of current and proposed waste facilities in Fyshwick.
  3. Extend the amount of time provided for the community to comment on the

    expected Development Application by CRS from the standard 15 working days to 40 working days in view of the massive amount of documentation the community will need to absorb and respond to.

  4. Commit to change the ACT Territory Plan so that such major waste facilities are prohibited as a land use in Fyshwick.
