Council disappointed over landfill order

The Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal recently granted an extension to a planning permit which will allow 500 Sunbury Road, Bulla, to be utilised as landfill tip for a further 10 years.

Hume Mayor, Councillor Adem Atmaca, today responded to the order.

"Council is disappointed with the decision of VCAT and we sympathise with the concerns many people have about this site," Cr Atmaca said.

"We’ll continue to investigate any complaints about the landfill business, and will work with the EPA to ensure the operator adheres to its obligations.

"Council has examined issues in the past that relate to litter, noise and illegal dumping, and we’ll continue to monitor the surrounding area.

"We respect the independence of VCAT and the Tribunal’s right to make this order."
