THE BULGA BUGLE No. 2

Topics discussed in this issue:
Saving Bulga was not a priority for Singleton Council
The case to defend Bulga was not sup-ported strongly by Singleton Council and by negotiating an early Voluntary Planning Agreement prior to the PAC decision, Council certainly undermined the case for Bulga and the environment.
The Voluntary Planning Agreement which they negotiated did not involve the people most impacted by an expansion, the residents of Bulga. Agreement was reached between Rio Tinto and Council to provide water and sewer, spending half the value of the $11,000,000 agreed under the VPA but without proper consultation with the residents. ‘Placemaking’ is not proper consultation when it comes to selecting projects and service for a VPA.
Water and Sewer no compensation
Why doesn’t the VPA clean roofs and tanks
VPA to finance other Council projects not impacted by Warkworth Expansion
