Anstey-Keane dumpland - Bush Forever site: Questions

928. Hon LYNN MacLAREN to the minister representing the Minister for Environment:
(1) What instances of rubbish dumping have been identified at the Anstey–Keane Dampland Bush Forever site this year?
(2) What is the status of the proposed extension of Keane Road?
(3) Will the minister ensure that the Anstey–Keane Dampland is preserved intact?

Hon HELEN MORTON replied:
I thank the honourable member for some notice of the question.
(1) Illegal rubbish dumping is an ongoing issue in the Skeet Road area of the Anstey–Keane Dampland. Large amounts of rubbish have been dumped in this area and the adjoining privately owned land of lot 67 and 171 Skeet Road. The most recent clean-up in this area was undertaken by the City of Armadale on 8 November 2013. Another significant source of rubbish in the area is wind-blown rubbish entering the Bush Forever site from areas adjacent to the site. The Department of Parks and Wildlife and the City of Armadale are currently liaising with developers to ensure that this rubbish is cleaned up. Department of Parks and Wildlife staff regularly remove rubbish from parts of the Bush Forever site under its management. Specific information on each instance of rubbish dumping is not available.
(2) It is understood that the City of Armadale is seeking to release an updated public environmental review for the formal eight-week public comment period, which is expected to commence either in late 2013 or early 2014.
(3) The government, in cooperation with other key stakeholders, will continue to give a high priority to on-ground management activities within Jandakot Regional Park and the surrounding area to ensure the maintenance of the important conservation values of the Anstey-Keane Dampland.
