What next: Use this Form Doncaster Sewage plant objection Email to both EPA and Manningham – both emails at the end of the form.
The next important thing to do is write your comments to the EPA. We have until the 18th of July (BEFORE NEXT WEDNESDAY) to make comments to the EPA on the proposed sewage plant. If the EPA don’t pass it we don’t have to rely on our councillors to do the right thing (and can avoid VCAT). All of the information needed to be able to comment is on their webpage http://www.epa.vic.gov.au under ‘Works approval and licence applications’. I have also included some information below straight from their webpage. If you don’t know what to write use the information from the objection letter (attached) – but focus on amenity and buffer distances to houses. You can email them your comments
All comments must be made in writing to: email (firstname.lastname@example.org)
or EPA Victoria, GPO Box 4395, Melbourne Victoria 3001
It should include:
• your contact details
• the application number and applicant name
• your comments
• an indication that this is your formal submission
It would also be good to send some emails directly to our councillors because they need to know we are not happy with this proposal. Here are the councillors emails if you want to voice your opinion or ask questions to them directly: email@example.com; firstname.lastname@example.org; email@example.com; firstname.lastname@example.org; email@example.com; firstname.lastname@example.org; email@example.com; firstname.lastname@example.org
We haven’t had any luck with hearing the position of our state MP (email Mary.Wooldridge@parliament.vic.gov.au) – she won’t tell us her views on the issue.
Thanks again everyone – keep up the good work and lets start making it clear to the councillors how local residents feel about this proposal. I will get confirmation of dates of what council meeting this will be going to vote and then we will plan our attack from there.
