Green Waste Win for Belconnen

After weeks of community concern and advocacy, the ACT Government has granted the operators of the West Belconnen Green Waste facility (Canberra Sand and Gravel) an extension to continue to operate.

Your Community Council was advised late this afternoon:
In response to community feedback, the ACT Government will extend CSG’s licence on a temporary basis while alternatives for green waste management on the northside are identified.

Congratulations to Minister Steel for hearing every member of this district (and beyond) who signed a petition or conveyed their need for a continued presence for green waste facilities. This is the essence of what we as a community can achieve when we work together with government to get the best possible outcome for our district. Thank you to our Ginninderra MLAs who have supported this outcome.

We look forward to working with the government and the community to identify an appropriate alternative site over the coming months to keep Belconnen “the Jewel in Canberra’s Crown”.

Don’t forget – BCC are partnering up with SMILES to deliver an inclusive playground in Melba.

We’ll be joined by MLAs as well so don’t miss your opportunity to tell us what you need in your neighbourhood!

Late last year your BCC Committee were approached by Melba resident Tim Korsopp seeking assistance to form a proposal for an inclusive playground for the suburb.

Over the last few months, Tim and fellow Melba resident Hector Contreras have developed a high level document outlining the proposal and presented it at our February Committee meeting. They have also created a Facebook page S.M.I.L.E so residents can get information and exchange ideas on the proposal.

Your BCC Committee endorsed the proposal and will be partnering with Tim, Hector and other residents to put the proposal to our local Ginninderra MLAs for support. Eventually, we would like to see the proposal picked up by the ACT Government as part of the next budget allocation for feasability studies and implementation funding. Special thanks to Melba IGA for their generous donations to make today’s event a success.

There is more information published on the S.M.I.L.E page or get in touch with us if you want to know more.
