Regional Waste Facility to cease

Investigation into the suitability of Reserve 14076, Goodwood Road Capel, as a regional waste facility will now cease.

The Capel Shire Council, on Wednesday night, passed a motion directing the chief executive officer Paul Sheedy to write to the Minister of Planning, Lands and Heritage to withdraw the request to seek a management order with power to lease the Reserve.

Mr Sheedy indicated that the South West Group of Councils would now reconsider their options at a proposed meeting in January 2018.

The Special Electors Meeting called by electors of the Shire and set to take place on Wednesday, November 29, at the Capel Community Centre, will still proceed as it is a requirement of the Local Government Act to hold the meeting once the date has been set.
