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.
