YRA Appeal to Government
We demand an exact timeline for online dust monitoring station(s) installation around quarries on the Darlington Range (similar to elsewhere in SE Qld) and the inclusion of the monitoring of silica and asbestos.
We demand that government reverses the unfair decision to delete green zones on quarry land.
We demand that original buffer zones around all quarries in the Darlington Range be reinstated.
We demand the state government bring back the original separation distances (or even increase them as suggested by City of Gold Coast Council) between industry and residences so that our community is better protected against noxious industry fallout.
We demand that both Council and State Government IMMEDIATELY make certain that appropriate and ongoing levels of air quality testing in the Yatala surrounding area are undertaken to ensure the health safety of residents living close to noxious industries.
Phoenix judgement in Planning and Environment Court (Warning: large file - 110mb)
