SITA Australia welcomes State Administrative Tribunal decision on Allawuna

08/03/2016

The State Administrative Tribunal (SAT) has today granted approval for SITA Australia to proceed with the Allawuna Farm Project.

SITA is pleased with the outcome and we will now take time to examine the detail of the SAT approval.

The Allawuna project has been through extensive regulatory review and scrutiny and today’s decision supports the evidence that thelandfill is an environmentally safe and an appropriate development for the proposed site,” SITA WA State General Manager Stock said.

Mr Stock said years of rigorous planning had gone into the $8 million project including comprehensive environmental assessments and design and operational updates.

“The Allawuna site ticks all the boxes following an extensive review of almost 20 potential sites – including its location off the Swan Coastal Plain, separation from ground and surface water, large buffer zones between the nearest houses and its distance from the York township,” he said.

Since planning for the project began SITA has reduced the proposed footprint by approximately 31 per cent, and the total volume of wastethe facility receives by approximately 46 per cent.

The nominal ‘life’ of the facility has also been downgraded from approximately 37 to about 20 years.

Located almost 20 kilometres from York at St Ronan’s on the Great Southern Highway, the proposed project accounts for less than five per cent of the 1516 hectare Allawuna Farm, which will remain a working farm.
