Community Panel meeting summary - 19 November 2019

8 months ago

The joint City of Port Adelaide Enfield and Environment Protection Authority’s Victoria Road Air Quality Study Community Panel met on the 19th November 2019 to review the proposed sites for the air quality monitors.

The results of assessment of the proposed 14 sites were reviewed by the panel members. This was followed by a meaningful discussion about the number of monitors available for sites on Victoria Road and surrounding residential areas. The outcome of the discussion was for the EPA technical adviser to investigate the availability of an additional two monitors to allow for the placement of six on Victoria Road and two in surrounding residential streets close to Victoria Road.

The panel, in consultation with the EPA technical adviser agreed on six sites for consideration along Victoria Road including Veitch/Osborne Road; Coghlan Road; Wills Street; Nelson Road; Marmora Terrace; and Gedville Road. This relies on 6 monitors being available for Victoria Road.

If there are four monitors for Victoria Road, the proposed sites agreed to by the panel are Coghlan Road; Veitch/Osborne Roads; Nelson Street; and Gedville Road. The other two monitors would be placed in residential areas close to Wills Street and Marmora Terrace.

Investigations by the EPA and Council into obtaining permits and approvals for proposed sites have commenced and will be taken into account during the next meeting of the panel.

Sincere thanks to the Elected Members for their attendance at the meetings.
