Emma Young of WA Today is on the trail looking for other DAP Affected Community.
This Community written about by Emma is the industrial precinct of Kewdale, where the DAP were asked to approve a “Noxious (Waste Storage Facility)” in a prohibited area zoned for industrial use. The DAP have supported the recommendation by Belmont Council, businesses and residents to refuse the application, but you guessed it, the applicant has appealed the decision at the SAT.
The SAT is a proven path to take to get anything approved. The SAT can use a Section 31 to have the DAP and the applicant mediate an outcome in secret, then send it back to the DAP for approval. This path has worked on many occasion for developers.
Here’s more of the story here:
In a twist on the usual story of Perth councils fighting controversial developments, Coca-Cola Amatil has thrown its hat in the ring to oppose a Kewdale waste facility.
Cleanaway has applied to build a waste storage facility in Belmont, WA, and the City of Belmont recommended the local development assessment panel knock it back because as a “noxious industry” it was a prohibited use in that industrial zone.
