Dump not locked in

DESPITE negotiations for a site for the Northern Granite Belt waste transfer station being well under way, the council could still back out, planning and environment director Ken Harris said yesterday.

The council has started the process of buying land at the corner of Granite Belt Dr and Butler Ln, in Dalveen, from the Department of Transport and Main Roads, but is "not locked in" if a proposed public consultation does not go to plan.

At a general council meeting yesterday, councillors resolved to put a number of measures in place to inform Dalveen residents about the facility, including direct contact and a public meeting.

Mr Harris said the site had been picked for its "minimal visual impact".
