The wellbeing and quality of life of our residents is our priority. We want to be part of the wider solution around minimising odour in Bromley and we’re committed to working with Environment Canterbury and our operators to achieve this.

We're working to minimise odour from our Bromley sites
In response to the findings presented by Environment Canterbury, we have been working with Living Earth and EcoCentral to develop an action plan [PDF, 799 KB] outlining potential short, medium and long-term options to mitigate odour at these two facilities. You can view a summary of the action plan [PDF, 377 KB] or read more about what we're doing below.
Our contractors are carrying out trials, along with increased monitoring of odour levels and data collection, to determine what options are the most effective. They have also got independent experts to review the pilot study findings and their onsite activities to provide further recommendations.
Over the next three months, while the trials are underway, the odour may be stronger or weaker on different days. It’s really important that if you live in Bromley, and you smell an odour, report it via the Smelt-It mobile app(external link), as this helps us capture information about what’s working and what’s not.
All operational changes and trials that our contractors are doing will be completed by the end of August 2020. At that time we’ll be working with them, and Environment Canterbury, to determine how effective the changes have been.
