Rubbish removed but dumped vehicle remains at Laurieton

Camden Haven residents have raised concerns after a dumped vehicle remains in Laurieton, months after it was initially reported to authorities.

Last month Laurieton resident Robert Scott called for immediate action to address the buildup of rubbish at a site in town.

The site is located on and adjacent to the track leading across the gully behind and between the Meals On Wheels building and the south west corner of the Camden Haven Community Health Centre.

NSW Department of Industry - Lands engaged a specialist rubbish contractor to clean up the site.

The Laurieton location was a dumping ground for litter prior to the clean up.

Mr Scott has commended the actions of the organisation in cleaning up rubbish at the area but said a dumped vehicle remains at the location.

A Crown Lands spokesperson said the department has engaged with NSW Police and has written to the registered owner of the vehicle to request the vehicle's removal from the site.

"If this is unsuccessful steps will be taken to have the vehicle removed and impounded after a period of public advertising as required under the Crown Land Management Act 2016," he said.

Mr Scott and other residents have been in contact with Crown Lands in relation to dumping ground since the end of 2018.
