LETTER: Please junk the junkyard plan

THE NBN asbestos debacle is once again proving the lack of understanding in this country of the dangers of asbestos, how to handle it properly, and the prevalence of its occurrence in building materials (‘‘Asbestos control reviewed,’’ Herald 3/6).

I sincerely hope a proposed junkyard-style building demolition waste receival station at Pendlebury Road Cardiff is not granted approval.

Without doubt, if approved, asbestos will end up dumped at this site, placing local workers, residents and school children’s lives at risk.

Council officers and councillors need to remember that they answer to the citizens of Lake Macquarie. I don’t recall corporations be granted the right to vote in this country.
