Coun­cil to cap stench from dump

Evening Express (Extra Edition) - - WHAT'S ON -

THE end is in sight for foul odours mak­ing res­i­dents’ lives a mis­ery in a North­east town.

Aberdeen­shire Coun­cil has been try­ing for years to deal with the stench from the Crow’s Nest tip on the out­skirts of Ban­chory.

Coun­cil­lors on the Marr area com­mit­tee have now ap­proved costs of a cap­ping pro­ject to help con­trol the nox­ious smell.

The prob­lem brought com­plaints from res­i­dents and busi­nesses who had to keep win­dows closed.

The coun­cil hired con­sul­tants at a cost of £120,000 to help iden­tify the best way to seal the site. The site should be odour-free by spring.
