Maroondah Journal: On deaf ears

By February 13, 2007No Comments

Southern Rocycling has proceeded with concrete works on a residential block at 61 Heatherdale Road, which is leased from SPI PowerNet.

The Maroondah Journal has investigated these actions, amid Southern Rocycling disregarding abatement notices to cease the concreting works.

Loughnan’s Hill War Councillor Alex Makin said Southern Rocycling had to learn to cooperate with the community and follow the council’s guidelines.

He said the company could not do anything with the land as it was zoned residential.

Maroondah City Council has issued planning notices requiring Southern Rocycling to remove the concrete within 14 days. Failure to comply leaves open the possibility of further legal action against the company.
