Recent ISCCC submission and correspondence about Fyshwick waste and recycling facilities

Submission in response to DA on proposed expansion of metal recycling facility in Fyshwick and a letter to Ministers conveying the text of a successful motion at the ISCCC’s public forum on 11 June calling for an independent inquiry into health and other impacts of the proposed waste facility in Fyshwick

ISCCC Submission – Waste to Energy

The ISCCC urges the ACT Government to provide a coherent policy framework for responding to waste-to energy proposals in Canberra. This should exclude thermal waste to energy processes and import of waste from interstate. It should focus instead on alternatives such as finding markets for large waste streams and ACT Government initiatives on recycling such as green bins.

ISCCC Response – Canberra Brickworks Precinct Access Road and Dudley Street Upgrade

A comprehensive plan is required for existing congestion at the Dudley Street/ Novar Street  roundabout, the Adelaide Street off-ramp to Kent Street, the Kent Street/ Denison Street intersection, as well as the Adelaide Avenue/ Hopetoun Circuit intersections and the Dudley Street upgrade, should not proceed in isolation of these other requirements.
