Used Lead Acid Battery (ULAB) Recycling Facility – Planning Permit Refused

Source: Latrobe City Council.
Council has refused an application for a planning permit for the construction of a Used Lead Acid Battery (ULAB) recycling facility at Hazelwood North.
Council voted to not issue a planning permit application for the ULAB recycling facility at a Special Council Meeting on 17 September.
Council decided that the Used Lead Acid Battery recycling facility did not meet the requirements of the Latrobe City Planning Scheme. The decision was made on planning grounds including taking into consideration amenity impacts.
Council received 123 submissions to the proposal and listened to over 35 speakers who addressed the Special Council Meeting.
The applicant has the right to appeal Council’s decision at the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal (VCAT).
