Energy from waste update
Outside of these four areas this activity, which the government calls energy from waste, is effectively prohibited across the rest of NSW and certainly in Sydney where the waste is generated.
Lithgow Mayor Ray Thompson said today “We continue to fight this decision taken by the State government, which was taken without any consultation with our community or the council. We have made representations to the Deputy Premier, the Minister for Environment and senior bureaucrats that this plan not be advanced..”
“Despite our representations it still appears as though the government is pushing ahead by including an area in the vicinity of the Mount Piper Power Station as a precinct for such facilities. Council is concerned that this could potentially open the floodgates, marking Lithgow as an area that will accept Sydney’s waste.”
“To date no evidence has been provided of any real positive economic impact from hosting such a facility”
The Mayor concluded “We will continue to make representations and remain hopeful that the government will abandon this proposal.”
