COMMUNITY group ShUT (Shoalhaven’s Unwanted Tip) is gearing up for its final salvo in the battle to stop a huge tip being established at Tomerong Quarry.
The issue is to be decided by the Southern Joint Regional Planning Panel when it meets tomorrow evening, and ShUT members are calling for community support at the meeting in Shoalhaven City Council’s chambers.
ShUT has registered several speakers who will address the panel on alleged inaccuracies in the Environmental Impact Statement, inadequate transport links to the site, the lack of justification for the new tip, and the threat it would provide to a nationally listed plant species, melaleuca.
ShUT has called on other community members wanting to present new information to the panel to register their intent to address the meeting by 4pm today, on 9383 2121.
Last week Shoalhaven City Council unanimously rejected the proposal after a detailed investigation by staff.
ShUT Chairperson Tom Donahue called on the JRPP to accept the council assessment and reject the application outright.
