Cement plan scrapped

Cement plan scrapped
Published: 11 December 2006

After 10 months of intense lobbying the Inner West community let their hair down last Sunday at a party to celebrate victory over a proposed 24-hour cement terminal for White Bay.

Developers IC&L Cement were forced to withdraw their application to build the terminal after fierce community opposition and advice from Planning Minister Frank Sartor.

With the cement terminal off the agenda the White Bay Steering Committee will now concentrate on its calls for a master plan to be developed for the whole of White Bay, Rozelle Bay and Glebe Island.

The White Bay Steering Committee was due to meet with Mr Iemma’s senior advisors yesterday to discuss their vision for the area.

"We haven’t stopped yet," steering committe chairperson Paul Cooper said.
