Parliament can block desalination plant approval

Greens MLC's in the state Parliament will try and block the approval of the desalination plant. "We will move a motion of disallowance when Mr Madden tables planning scheme amendments in the Upper House this year" said Greg Barber.  http://www.news.com.au/heraldsun/story/0,21985,24892718-2862,00.html

Mr Madden's report says the planning schemes of four shires will need to be amended to allow the plant and its associated powerlines and water pipelines to be built. http://www.dse.vic.gov.au/DSE/nrenpl.nsf/LinkView/5249619A2A213442CA2573BE007EEAA992FBC7C133A6F520CA2572DA007FAB8B

Section 38(2)of the Planning and Environment Act allows either house of Parliament to vote to disallow a planning scheme amendment tabled by the Minister.

To stop the desalination plant will require the support of all Liberal, National and DLP Upper House members.
