A number of residents have been told that Suez’s incinerator is a “done deal” and will go ahead irrespective of what objections are raised by residents. This is NOT the case!
So what’s the approval process??
Once Suez has submitted its Environment Impact Study (EIS), the Dept of Planning will call for residents opposing (or not) the proposal to lodge their submissions. If the Dept receive enough objections, we can apply for a hearing at the Land & Environment Court. That’s happened to TNG’s proposed incinerator for Eastern Creek.
That proposal was knocked back in 2018 and is on the way to being knocked back for a second time.
Some residents also think the new intersection and traffic lights installed just next to OPAL’s site is to allow truck access for SUEZ’s incinerator.
This is also NOT the case – this intersection is to allow access to a new warehouse complex being built in the area and has nothing to do with Suez’s proposed incinerator.
So prepare for a long fight to stop Suez and Opal’s madness and in the meantime see how to lodge objections to the relevant NSW Govt ministers and local pollies here: https://nomoreincinerators.wordpress.com/object/
