No waste plant for Brooklyn
The Metropolitan Waste Management Group has awarded the contract to Veolia, which will build a plant at Bulla, north of Melbourne.
Brooklyn had long been touted as the most likely location.
State Williamstown MP Wade Noonan said the decision would come as a relief to many residents, who had put up with odours for far too long. "Local residents wrote to me back in July about their emphatic opposition to these plans and asked me to make representations on their behalf, which I did."
The tender process involved 11 northern and western metropolitan councils. The waste plant will service the municipalities for the next 10-15 years.
The 11 councils are Hobsons Bay, Hume, Maribyrnong, Banyule, Brimbank, Darebin, Melton, Moonee Valley, Moreland, Nillumbik and Wyndham.
