This is in sharp contradiction to the desires of the communities neighbouring the Green Wedge and Kingston Council’s Green Wedge plan, who want waste industries out of the wedge.
Ms Peulich said Labor either needed to admit and change the blunder in their plan before waste companies capitalised, or Labor should come clean on their intentions for landfills in the Kingston Green Wedge, rather than keeping the community in the dark.
Ms Peulich said that local Labor MPs particularly Hong Lim needed to stand up for people in Dingley Village, Clarinda, Clayton South, Heatherton, Braeside, Oakleigh South and Cheltenham and not allow the hub to extend in to the Green Wedge.
Quotes attributed to Inga Peulich MLC, Member for South Eastern Metropolitan Region:
“People in Dingley Village, Clarinda, Clayton South, Heatherton, Braeside, Oakleigh South and Cheltenham deserve certainty. They want a chain of parks not a waste ‘hub of state importance’.”
“The community and Kingston Council have worked hard to develop a vision for the Green Wedge. The Government needs to get on board, and not make the Green Wedge a waste hub of state importance.”
“Labor’s internal factional divisions, strikes, election funding rort investigations and Ministerial sackings have them so pre-occupied that they are not paying attention to the policies that matter for the people.”
