ORGANISERS of a protest on the steps of Parliament on August 9 at 10.30am will use the town’s community bus to ferry opponents of the Great Southern Landfill proposal for Allawuna Farm.

Protest organiser Kay Davies said a community bus had been organised for members of the community who would prefer not to drive but still attend the rally.

The bus plans to leave from the York Recreation Centre at 8am and car pooling for the event will also be available.

During the rally, a petition will be handed to the Legislative Council to formally register the significant concerns surrounding the proposal and request that members of the council oppose the landfill.

Residents wishing to go by bus can contact driver Peter Wright on 0400 295 819 to confirm their seat.

Opponents of the landfill proposal include the shires of York, Toodyay and Mundaring, the York Business Association (YBA), the Avon Valley Residents Association (AVRA), and the Perth Hills Climate Change Interest Group (PHCCIG).

A Facebook event has been created to summarise all the details of the rally and provide updates and can be accessed through the following link.
