Will nearby neighbours be impacted by odours?

It will be the responsibility of the County to ensure that neighbours are not impacted by odours. Controlling offsite odours will be a significant operational requirement of the facility and site design and technology must ensure specified odour limits are met. This was a consideration during the siting process and the preferred location offers large separation distances. Modern odour control measures will also be incorporated into design of the buildings and material will be accepted in enclosed buildings under negative air pressure, utilizing fast-action doors. Additional information can be found in the odour assessment completed as part of the Facility Characteristics Report.
