Stop the Tip represents landowners and residents who are concerned about the impact the massive proposed expansion of the Ravenhall Tip will have on our community.
We want homes, jobs and economic opportunity for the west – not to see it become Melbourne’s dumping ground.
In 2014, previous owner Boral’s proposal for a massive expansion of the Western Landfill was rejected by Melton City Council following a strong community campaign with over 6,600 objections received.
The tip’s new owners, Cleanaway, are trying again.
In February 2016, Cleanaway applied for a massive expansion that would create one of the world’s largest landfills in the heart of our community.
Their application was considered by an independent planning panel in September and October 2016 and the application will be decided by the Minister for Planning in coming months.
