Seasands Drive by Soft Landing

Town Planning

Seasands Drive by Soft Landing Mattress Recycling

Barker Ryan Stewart provided planning services to obtain approval for the conversion of an existing boat building facility into a Waste and Resource Recovery facility in Redhead, City of Lake Macquarie. Our client, Soft Landing Mattress Recycling, collects and recycles mattresses to reduce landfill and create jobs in NSW, VIC, WA, and the ACT. 

Soft Landing is a Social Enterprise, which means that it exists to create a fairer and more sustainable world. Social Enterprises must: 

  • Have a defined primary social, cultural, or environmental purpose consistent with a public or community benefit, and 
  • Derive a substantial portion of their income from trade, and 
  • Invest efforts and resources into their purpose such that public/community benefit outweighs private benefit.
