The proposal is for the development of a church and school on Lot 68 Bertram Road, Wellard.
The proponent has indicated that they wish to commence construction of Stage One of the proposal which includes two classrooms and an ablution block. Condition 2 of Ministerial Statement 160 states that: "Prior to use, the proponent shall connect both the church and the school to a reticulated sewerage service."
It is intended to connect to reticulated sewerage via a pump station which will be constructed approximately 500 metres to the west of the school site in East Parmelia. However, the pump station will not be constructed for about 6 to 12 months. The proponent is seeking a variation to Condition 2 so that they can be allowed to dispose of effluent by alternative means until the pump station becomes available for connection. The alternative rneans proposed by the proponent include on-site disposal by use of systems such as Ecomax or Biocycle, or disposal of effluent into a storage tank which would then be transported to the Forrestfield Wastewater Treatment Plant by an approved liquid waste contractor.
Inquiry under s46 into amendments to Condition 2 of Ministerial Statement 160.
