Greg Weare said the developers for two Mills Road East sites near Lumen Christi College had failed to control dust, thick layers of which were now coating his house.

‘I can feel it in my mouth, my eyes, the house is a mess,’ he said. ‘You wake up in the night and taste it. My wife has asthma ” it’s now a health issue.’

He said he had made attempts to contact the City of Gosnells in search of a solution, as well as developers, one of which had sent a team of people to clean his house last Monday.

But he said the house was filthy again hours later.

Despite making countless phone calls, there had been no further action.

‘They are all trying to blame someone else’
