Submission for: Kariong Sand and Soil Supplies Facility


John Ryan

Somersby, New South Wales


This state significant development application should not be approved if
there is any possibility that the facility is going to cause the local
area and businesses to be inflicted with putrid smelling air and
airborne harmful dust. This Somersby industrial area is only now
starting to take off and there are several new warehouses being
constructed which is great for the immediate area and the Central
Coast. A facility such as is proposed should be located much further
away from an industrial estate. It is impossible for such a business
to govern or police the incoming waste materials so that only
non-putrescible will be dumped there. History shows that skip bins are
loaded with all sort of materials despite the requests not to do so.
