FORT MANAGEMENT PLAN - SOLID WASTE MANAGEMENT

As a far-reaching planning process, the Fort Management Plan will consider solutions for upgrading electrical and communication services. The various sub-precincts of the Fort area share a common network; hence a comprehensive study can be promptly followed by a suitable and successful intervention suitable for the entire precinct.

The Federation of Fort Area Citizen Associations joins UDRI's technical team in recognising that the collection and disposal of solid waste and the local sewerage system followed by the local government agencies is no longer appropriate for the capacity and growth pattern of the Fort area.

A comprehensive assessment of current community and government practices is therefore required along with the documentation of the sewerage system and network of storm water drains.

This will result in the appropriate collection and disposal of wet and dry waste - including in situ composting where viable. The Fort Management Plan intends to establish a sustainable resolution to these crises.
