Say Hi to Chris Hanson

Waste company SUEZ and the Opal Paper Mill have lodged a proposal seeking approval under Division 4.7 of Part 4 of the EP&A Act to build the Botany Cogeneration Plant at 1891 Botany Rd Matraville.

The proposal is classified as State Significant Development as it is a co-generation of heat and electricity and has a capital investment value of over $30M. This means it bypasses local approvals of Randwick Council and is currently with the Department of Planning, Industry and Environment. As at the end of 2020 the status is that the applicant is currently preparing an Environmental Impact Statement.

Suez have commenced their Community Reference Group and have been frustrated in their lack of success in convincing the local community to accept their proposed waste incinerator. We now understand that Suez will be lodging their Environmental Impact Statement with the Department of Planning in late 2021 where it will go on public exhibition. Once this happens we will need everyone to lodge objections – if there are four adults in a household you can lodge four objections!

Right now we need everybody’s support to show the NSW Government what the community thinks of Suez and Opal’s waste incinerator.

We need as many people as possible (four adults in a household = four objections!) to write to the following organisations and let them know how an incinerator in Matraville will affect you. Just follow the steps below!
