Controversial new Dunedin landfill to be publicly notified

Nicole Reporter from Dunedin News

Dunedin needs a new rubbish dump, and residents will get to have their say on the proposed site.

The Dunedin City Council (DCC) is proposing a new landfill at Smooth Hill, 28 kilometres southwest of the city near Brighton, to replace the current dump at Green Island, which is nearing the end of its life.

The move has raised the ire of some Brighton residents, who fear it may have negative effects on the surrounding area, particularly waterways.

Those opposed now have another chance to have their say, with the Otago Regional Council confirming it has decided to publicly notify the city council's consent application for the new landfill.
