ISCCC Alert and Call to Action on Massive Proposed Fyshwick Waste Facilities

The ISCCC and our member residents groups, in cooperation with the Fyshwick Business Association and other stakeholders, are organising a major campaign to respond to massive proposed waste facilities in Fyshwick that will be just hundreds of metres from residents’ homes and surrounded by businesses, with implications for their employees and customers.


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

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