I attended the packed meeting in St Albans tonight to discuss an application by the Barro Group to build a tip on the site they currently use part of for a concrete batching plant.
The residents said loud and clear they do not want a tip
While Barro was trying to convince the community that it would be ok, our ocmmunity are sick and tired of being told for years that 'is alright' when it patently isn't. The site, which is next to the Maribyrnong River should never have been allowed by council to become a quarry and now that it is having (and has had) a detrimental effect on the residents for so long, its operations should be closed down immediately. The remediation of the site should begin as soon as possible to create a green area in keeping with appropriate activity on the river valley. Given the erosion that is occurring, the whole site should be replanted as it would have been before the quarrying began as a matter of urgency.
