Inner Western Courier Thursday Not Used Anymore : October 15 2008
MB INNER-WEST WEEKLY, Thursday, October 16, 2008 3 NEWS www.innerwestweekly.com.au An earful of protest FIONA BRADY What do you think about the pigs' ears proposal? Tell us at www.innerwestweekly.com.au A GROUP of Haberfield residents are opposing a local pet shop's bid to be allowed to dehydrate pigs' ears on its premises. Aussie Pet Supplies at 183 Parra- matta Rd has applied to Ashfield Council for permission to carry out the work on-site. The company says the business does not manufacture goods and only involves the process of dehydrating pet food for sale. But some residents living in the Chandos St area have objected to the proposal, fearing it will lead to noxious smells, waste, noise and an increase in vermin. Twenty-nine residents have signed a petition objecting to what they described as a ''pet food production factory'' in the heritage-protected suburb. Other residents have written letters claiming that pet food pro- duction is not within the ''existing use'' rights of the store. ''We are concerned with the potential increase of vermin, smell, noise and tipping of waste water down the storm drain,'' one letter writer wrote. ''It is for this reason that we object to this proposal due to the close vicinity to our homes.'' The production process would involve boxes of frozen pigs' ears being delivered once a week and stored in the cool room. They would then be placed on racks and dehydrated using drying ovens and placed in plastic tubs for sale. In a letter to Ashfield Council, the town planners acting for Aussie Pet Supplies tried to re- spond to concerns by agreeing to take such actions as placing dry- ing ovens facing away from resi- dences, monitoring odours and carrying out pest and vermin inspections once a quarter. At Tuesday night's meeting, the council was to consider a report recommending ''conditional ap- proval''. The report said the pro- posal was ''ancillary'' to the store's existing use rights. Get a roll on to enjoy the carnival atmosphere FIONA BRADY Brazilian drummer and dancer Nei Boa Morte in Majors Bay Rd, Concord, heralds the Concord Carnival this Sunday. Picture: PHIL BLATCH ~PP203175 ROLL up. Roll up. Brazilian musician Nei Boa Morte is drumming up some excitement ahead of this Sunday's Concord Carnival. This year's event is a celebration of carnivals from around the world, taking place along Majors Bay Rd from 10am to 4pm. There'll be little Venice, a Brazilian carnival zone and a medieval theme with knights, squires, jousting and jesters. Carnival-goers can also enjoy food, musical performances, roving entertainment, face painting and stalls. The event will help raise money for the Hope for Children Orphanage in Cambodia. While all carnival activities are free, revellers will be asked to donate a gold coin at any of the three face painting areas, with all proceeds going to care for children who lost their parents during the genocide years in Cambodia. Concord Carnival is a smoke- free event. Free event car parking will be available in Jessie Stewart Reserve (access via Greenlees Ave). The event is sponsored by the Inner-West Weekly.
