Media release: 7 April, 2014

CEN has now received legal advice on the dumping of over 1 million cubic metres of rubbish at Mangrove Mountain over the past 16 years. The advice confirms that Gosford Council failed to adequately ensure compliance with legislation and approvals. It also reveals that an Environmental Impact Statement and Development Application is required for any continued dumping.

Residents deserve a better vision for the Central Coast

thumb handcccenCEN is very concerned about the new initiative from Gosford and Wyong Councils and the Express Advocate calling for a "Fair Go" for the Central Coast and in particular the petition. Key to our concerns is the push to remove environmental protections. Read our Letter to the Editor below.

Media Release: Dumping at Mangrove Mountain Golf Course

MM Golf courseWhen does a Golf Course become a Dump!

CEN has obtained advice from a Consultant Planner on the dumping at Mangrove Mountain. The dumping was originally approved to allow filling and levelling of some difficult terrain to improve the Golf Course. In the original 1998 approval 240,000 cubic metres were to be allowed over 5 years. Instead, over 1 million cubic metres have been dumped over 12 years.
