Join discussion on local issues with Gidgegannup Progress Association

THE Gidgegannup Progress Association will meet to discuss several issues at the Agricultural Hall on Monday, August 15, at 7.30pm.

Topics will include the Gran Fondo cycling race, the Perth Transport Plan and Opal Vale Landfill.

“The critical point is the landfill is within a declared water sensitive area,” the association’s meeting agenda said.

“If the environmental considerations are overruled then it sets a precedence for future landfills, mines and other operations to use the fact the water factors were not valid enough to stop the approval.

“The fact landfill is no longer a zoned use in the Shire is cold comfort.

“The strategy can be revised to accommodate landfill if council permits.”
