Illegal Dumping & Environmental Vandalism
During construction of the Hastings River Rd upgrade material was removed by the contractor under instruction of Council and moved to land managed but not owned by Council in Tuffins Lane. Consequently, the land's owner ordered it to be moved and some material was illegally dumped onto E1 Conservation Zoned land which forms part of National Parks land on Ocean Drive.
Council will be required by National Parks to remove the material and remediate the damaged National Park land at the community's cost, estimated to exceed $500,000.
