Endeangered honeyeater cited by opponents to Hunter steel workshop

An endangered bird has been cited by
environmentalists opposed to a planned steel fabrication workshop in the Hunter
Economic Zone.

The Newcastle Herald reports that Friends
of Tumblebee have said the site in Weston was the habitat of the regent
honeyeater, an endangered species.

The development was approved by council
last September by eight votes to two.

A hearing in the Land and Environment Court
is set for August.
