Mangrove Mountain Landfill Court Case

On 8th August the MDA committee, together with three community members, met with the Central Coast Council’s administrator Mr Rik Hart, as well as Council’s lawyer, Mr Ed Hock.

We presented the history of the issue and a statement of community expectations for action. That is, that the landfill site be permanently closed, remediated and the golf course constructed as per the intention of the original approval. Our aim is to protect the aquifer and the Central Coast Water Supply.

We were extremely pleased when Mr Hart advised that Central Coast Council will actively defend the Appeal by Verde Terra in the Land and Environment Court, set for 1st September.
