Cedar Grove Action Group will have its signs and petition ready for a public meeting on September 23.

The group was formed to fight the proposed sewerage treatment plant which will be placed off Cedar Grove Road to treat effluent from the Greater Flagstone Priority Development Area.

CGAG chairperson Debbie Brezac said she knew people in Cedar Grove and surrounding suburbs were passionate about the issue.

“We have started a handwritten petition which has more than 500 signatures,” she said.

“We are encouraging people to bring their signs too.”

Ms Brezac said the committee were working hard behind the scenes to educate themselves about the development and it’s impacts.

“We really think a community meeting will allow us to share our knowledge with everyone so they know what is going on in their own backyard,” she said.

“Our group believes the current proposed placement of the site is not appropriate and we want people to be informed.

“Once the development notice goes up, then the community can really start standing up for themselves.

“This meeting will allow us to prepare residents for what they can do to help their community.”

Ms Brezac said the public meeting would last for less than 30 minutes and would allow more residents to sign the petition.

The meeting will be held at Brushwood Park, Cedar Grove, at 9am on September 23.
