Part 3 Division 23 Clause 123
123   Determination of development applications
(1)  In determining a development application for development for the purpose of the construction, operation or maintenance of a landfill for the disposal of waste, including putrescible waste, the consent authority must take the following matters into consideration—
(a)  whether there is a suitable level of recovery of waste, such as by using alternative waste treatment or the composting of food and garden waste, so that the amount of waste is minimised before it is placed in the landfill, and
(b)  whether the development—
(i)  adopts best practice landfill design and operation, and
(ii)  reduces the long term impacts of the disposal of waste, such as greenhouse gas emissions or the offsite impact of odours, by maximising landfill gas capture and energy recovery, and
(c)  if the development relates to a new or expanded landfill—
(i)  whether the land on which the development is located is degraded land such as a disused mine site, and
(ii)  whether the development is located so as to avoid land use conflicts, including whether it is consistent with any regional planning strategies or locational principles included in the publication EIS Guideline: Landfilling (Department of Planning, 1996), as in force from time to time, and
(d)  whether transport links to the landfill are optimised to reduce the environmental and social impacts associated with transporting waste to the landfill.
(2)  In this clause—
putrescible waste means general solid waste (putrescible) within the meaning of clause 49 of Schedule 1 to the Protection of the Environment Operations Act 1997.
