Environment and Sustainable Development have announced their intention to expand the landfill at the Mugga Lane tip:

“The existing landfill facility at Mugga Lane is expected to reach capacity in 2015–2016,” Mr Ponton said.

“We have excellent recycling systems in the ACT with 70% of our waste being recycled, but with the ACT producing a million tonnes of waste last year, we still need a landfill facility.

“ACT NOWaste investigated alternative landfill sites and consulted the community before choosing to expand the existing facility.

“Draft variation 305 proposes to amend the Territory Plan so the existing Mugga Lane landfill can be expanded onto the adjacent Jerrabomberra Block 2247.

“This proposal will meet the ACT landfill requirements for up to 30 years,” Mr Ponton said.

A draft EIS has also been done.

You’ve got until 5 April to make your thoughts known.

After the smell ceased about 30th December 2014 (ACT Government’s Christmas present to residents of East Tuggeranong), it is back with a vengeance this morning.
Here we go again.

Well, Liebor will win the next election and all will be good again. The evil Liberals will pay for their sins.
We will then return to permanent budget surpluses like Wayne Swan promised (but never delivered – it was just another policy backflip afterall).

Promising surpluses was not a lie, it was a wrong prediction. Just like your mate Hockey made predications at the last budget about how much money they will make and spend and found that those predictions were well off the mark due to external factors. Not of GFC levels of course, heaven help us if the Liebrals had been in power during the GFC, I reckon the country would still be in recession.

How could we “still” be in recession if we never had one?

Quite true thanks of course to the Labor party and their stimulus package. If the Libs (see I shortened it so as to not confuse my contextual spell checker) then we would have no doubt gone into recession and would still be well in one and a lot lot lot worse off.

Who would want to be a “new” government in the ACT? You would never vote for them whether they were “electable” or not so stop trying to deflect the blame for ACT Labor’s self-inflicted problems onto the opposition because they don’t behave like an alternative government.

Actually I think it is quite a bad thing to have one party in power so long, just look at QLD under the Nationals.

And it may surprise you but when I lived in Sydney in 1995 I voted for the Fahey government. I would type the name of the party but you know when my contextual spell checker would do but lets say it was not the Labor party. That said Carr got in and became one of the longest running NSW Premiers, however as I said party in power too long, Labor should have been kicked out of power in the 2003 or 2007 elections, but of course the opposition was not electable. Just as the ACT opposition party isn’t either.

Can but hope they won’t get into government, and yes actually it does matter. If they want to be the new government it is time they acted like an electable alternative government rather than be an opposition party. You do know in politics that oppositions are not there to oppose all and sundry, it is just the name given to the party/coalition with the 2nd largest number of seats.

Lie = bad
Bad prediction = good

PS: Hockey isn’t my mate, comrade.

I am surprised to have to ‘spell it out’ but ‘Liebral’ is not a spelling mistake, it is an intentional way……

….and oh how the Left sneered at the rednecks with their juvenile ‘Juliar’ posters.

Yes JC, Hume has been there since the 1980s but I understand it was only meant to be a small pocket of light industrial warehouses, not part of a ‘industrial corridor’ (the corridor thing being quite recent). Mitchell is similar, and we all know about the other light industrial pockets in Phillip and Belco.
Dungfungus, I am surprised to have to ‘spell it out’ but ‘Liebral’ is not a spelling mistake, it is an intentional way of noting the proliferation of lies being spouted by the Liberals (though IMHO such a tactic is mainly applicable to the fed govt and this is a local govt issue).

You mean like “Liebor”?

Your originality cracks me up. But if we want to count lies, the whole of the 2013 federal campaign was based on lies. The supposed lie by Gillard on the other hand, if you want to call it a lie was just 1, but of course if you look at the definition of a lie, her supposed lie was not a lie, just a policy backflip. A lie needs intent to misslead, Liebral 2013 was one big attempt and lie.

Well, Liebor will win the next election and all will be good again. The evil Liberals will pay for their sins.
We will then return to permanent budget surpluses like Wayne Swan promised (but never delivered – it was just another policy backflip afterall).

AAA credit rating? Leahman Bros. had one of those as well.
“Best debt” in the world? Is that better than the substantial credit they started with?
Have you read what the ACT auditor said last week about ACT’s parlous financial situation? Are you comfortable about the almost $5 billion unfunded superannuation owing to ACT public servants? (hope you are one of them).

Best debit, yep happy with that, because the alternative would have been much much worse, just like the Liebral party is leading us now.

As for the ACT no I am not an ACT public servant, but got to ask the same question I’ve asked before these issues you have, how would ACT Liebral do any different?

And I will tell you again that it doesn’t matter what the ACT Liberals want to do as they are not in power nor will they ever be.
