In August 2016, the owners of the Richgro fertilizer plant at the end of Acourt Road applied to the City of Cockburn for permission to build 3 more large sheds on their property. This was advertised to neighbours and caused some consternation.
From time to time there is an unpleasant odour arising from the plant and some dust from the plant is alleged to drift over neighbours’ houses. These concerns were raised with the City of Cockburn who performed an environmental audit of the operation and identified remedial action to be taken on a dozen matters.
Richgro is performing the remedial action and anticipate that their planning application will be considered by Cockburn Council in February 2017.
