Jun 13, 2019
A small victory in our fight for our environment. Activism works again thanks to all who shared posts and contacted the departments.
The aerial spraying of RoundUp within Wollongong and Shellharbour cities will be subjected to a complete review following public uproar over its use, it has been revealed.
Thousands of people had voiced their concern it was reported the spraying was set to commence this month, covering Perkins Beach and Hill 60 at Port Kembla, Coniston Beach, and Bass Point.
Wollongong City Council had earlier announced it would review its use of weed suppression strategies to make sure they fit community expectations.
“We have listened to the concerns of the community with regards the use of Roundup, and are looking to refine or adjust methods to manage the bitou bush on the five targeted sites using the best science available,” Cr Bradbery, the Illawarra Shoalhaven Joint Organisation chair, said.
“I have requested a complete review to be undertaken of the proposed aerial spraying with RoundUp across targeted Illawarra sites by the IDWA.”
