Have your say on Development Application DA201935337, a proposal for new machinery to enhance a metal recycling operation in Fyshwick. A key issue is proposed open air shredding of metal. US studies indicate that each tonne of steel that is recovered in a similar process is expected to produce about 300 kg of residue, comprised of plastics, rubber, glass, foam and textiles, contaminated by oil and other fluids. In the proposed open air shredding process an appreciable amount of microscopic particles from car interiors and paint will escape into the air as dust.

The ISCCC has declared that while some limited progress has been made recently to address building quality, for example the increased verification of skills and qualifications of builders, there remains much to be done. Any suggestion that the task has been substantially addressed is unrealistically optimistic or just political “spin”.
The ISCCC supports the continuation of the Lease Variation Charge, because it is fair and reasonable for developers to be taxed on the changes in the value of their land resulting from a change of use for that land.
ISCCC calls for substantial reforms to Development Application processes to improve transparency and accountability, and produce better environmental outcomes.
