Council called to help reduce smelly business

SOUTH Coffs Harbour residents and business firms are appealing to Coffs Harbour City Council to provide financial help to Biomass Solutions to reduce smells from their operation.

Resident Sue Seaton asked councillors at Thursday's meeting of Coffs Harbour City Council to enter a financial partnership agreement with Biomass Solutions so all the strategies recommended by the Department of the Environment and Climate Change to mitigate odour emissions could be implemented immediately.

Ms Seaton said council must take part of the responsibility for the smell, because it lodged an application with itself to develop a green waste recovery facility; council published an environmental impact statement which said the facility would have no odour impact over and above the existing landfill and council gave approval to itself for the development on the basis of this EIS.
