I am pleased to announce that at its first meeting of the year that I, and fellow councillors of Maroondah City Council, resolved to approve the criminal prosecution of Southern Rocycling over its delivery of pig iron steel in January 2006.
I realise that this noise has caused great distress to many residents and I would like to thank everyone that contacted me about these concerns. The official adoption of this motion seeking prosecution against Southern Rocycling will ensure a hearing before the Magistrate’s Court.
Prosecution will be sought for alleged breaches of the Health Act 1958 and as well as a separate prosecution under the Planning & Environment Act 1987 for Southern Rocycling’s alleged breaches of the Maroondah Planning Scheme.
I will provide further details once the hearing dates have been confirmed.
