POWER OF COMMUNITY! 21st Jan 2024

Did you know Woodside Energy, Australia’s oil and gas giant, had Perth Hills earmarked for a significant industrial project?

While stopping North $toneville is SPH’s priority, we often work behind the scenes, especially if we feel the essence of Perth Hills could be threatened.

Last year Woodside Energy and East Metro Regional Council (EMRC), wanted to build a Carbon-Ethanol Pilot Plant, with an enclosed 24/7 flame  AND a batching plant to ‘encapsulate Toxic Class 5 Fly Ash’. (see image below)

All this, on John Forrest National Park’s southern boundary, at Red Hill’s waste site on Toodyay Rd.

During 2023 SPH and Stoneville & Parkerville Progress Association Inc (SPPA), attended community meetings held by Woodside, which overwhelming opposed the plan.

We also met Woodside, privately, advocating strongly against the plan, citing bushfire and evacuation risks, and the utter inappropriateness of this type of industrialisation in Perth’s Hills.

Well, Woodside has now 'quietly' pulled the pin, citing ‘cost effectiveness’...

We cite the Power of Community.

Our Hills are beautiful and unique – and vulnerable and volatile.

So, take note $atterley... 33-years on, SPH commits to continue to defend our Hills relentlessly, to ensure future planning, in whatever form, safeguards, not endangers, our Community, and our environment.
