Tesch disappointed with Mangrove tip decision

Member for Gosford Ms Liesl Tesch said she was disappointed with a court decision that allows a tip at Mangrove Mountain to continue to operate.

"The decision by the Land and Environment Court is incredibly disappointing and allows court orders made in 2014 to stand."

These would allow 1.14 million cubic metres of landfill to de deposited at the site, a continuation of the massive environmental and public health disaster, she said.

"Many in our community believe that the Coast shouldn't be the tip for the rest of the state, and yet this decision leaves the door open for more waste to be deposited at Mangrove Mountain," said Ms Tesch.

"Whilst the outcome is legally complex, this allows an additional 340,000 tonnes of waste to be delivered at the top of the Central Coast water catchment.

Tesch says the Mangrove Mountain landfill decision by the Land and Environment Court places significant pressure on Council administrator Mr Rik Hart and Central Coast Council staff to deliver the best possible outcome for the Central Coast.

"Before Council enters into talks with Verde Terra about amending the 2014 court orders, it needs to consider the best options it has for protecting our water catchment.

"The original permission for the landfill was provided by the Gosford Council general manager in 2014 without consultation with the then elected councillors.

"The Land and Environment Court was scathing of Central Coast Council and the former Gosford City Council for taking so long to respond to the 2014 court orders which allowed a 10-year expansion and larger works to begin."
