Another proposed dump site leaves a Residents Group 'hoodwinked'.

The Willowbank Area Residents Group  wants the Jeebropilly coal mine site (pictured) rehabilitated, as originally promised, instead of being a proposed landfill dump site.

Ipswich Council recently refused Land-Trac's application, to use a New Hope coal mining void to fill it with 30 million cubic metres of building waste, after failing to meet the deadline.

W.A.G's President George Hatchmann says New Hope attended meetings...telling residents they would be free from mining and dust, but they were actually making other plans.
