Fury as Woodside works approved - The West Australian

Fury as Woodside works approved - The West Australian: Five community members were given five minutes each to oppose the application and cited concerns about Woodside’s record of compliance with Shire planning approvals and environmental management.

However, the conditional approval was passed unanimously.

After the meeting, Environs Kimberley spokesman Martin Pritchard was angry the Shire’s position on the matter had been completely ignored by the DAP.

“This shows how the Development Assessment Panels have been set up to override community and Shire Council decisions,” he said.

“They are undemocratic and the decision makers, flown in from Perth, did not even visit the site of the proposed development.”

Mr Pritchard said he was seeking legal advice.
