Wanneroo council opts for waste to energy facility in Neerabup

THE City of Wanneroo council agreed to a ‘waste to energy’ use rather than a solar farm on a Neerabup property last month.

During a confidential session at its September meeting, councillors unanimously agreed in principle to sell or lease a portion of Lot 600 (570) Wattle Avenue to an unnamed proponent.

It also authorised the chief executive to support other land disposition proposals for the site and noted a further report would come to the council once a preferred method of disposal was chosen.

In July, the council agreed to invite tenders for a green power facility on the site, including solar farm proposals.
