Mangrove Mountain Landfill Update

Latest from Land and Environment Court Case 2023

The Court of Appeal judgment was delivered on 2nd June. The judge refused Verde Terra’s request not to have to put in a new Development Application.

The critical outcome from the Court of Appeal judgment is that any new DA would be required to be accompanied by an Environmental Impact Statement.

It is most unlikely that VerdeTerra would be capable of sustaining a position of minimal environmental impact to allow any DA to be approved, so the Court of Appeal judgment is about as good a result as we could have hoped for.

The community still has a lot of work to do before this case is over: –

  • We DO NOT want a Waste Facility at this sensitive, water catchment site.
  • We DO want the site to be cleaned up.
  • We Do want the site to be returned to the community.
