  • Closing: CRC144081 Gelita New Zealand Ltd
    Type: Consent Notification

    Applicant: Gelita NZ Limited

    Address for service: C/- Golder Associates PO Box 2281 Christchurch, Attn: Kevin Bligh

    CRC144081:  application to change the conditions of resource consent CRC921759, to discharge contaminants to air (Including odorous compounds and products of combustion) from the process involved with the manufacture of gelatine and the operation of coal and oil fired boilers at  address 135 – 145 Connal Street, Woolston.

    The application is to change condition 5 of the resource consent. Condition 5 currently requires that the consented activities do not create an offensive odour beyond the boundary of the site.  To achieve compliance with this requirement, the consent holder needs to implement odour control measures on its site. This work is proposed to take place over a 3 year period and will involve improvements and modifications to the existing site, designed to improve odour control to achieve full compliance with its resource consent conditions. During this 3 year period, it is anticipated that there will be occasions where Gelita will not be able to comply with condition 5 of CRC921759.  Accordingly, a change to condition 5 is sought as follows (original wording is not underlined):

    5. Following installation of the biofilter, there shall be no offensive odour, in the opinion of an Enforcement Officer of the Canterbury Regional Council, and as identified as originating from the biofilter or any other process carried out by the consent holder, beyond the property boundary of the site. This condition shall not apply during the 3 year period from [date consent is granted] until [3 years from this date] to enable site upgrading works to take place. During this 3 year period, the consent holder will be required to take all practicable steps with the existing process and buildings to minimise fugitive odour emissions from the site, including the implementation of further engineering controls, or process changes. to contain sources of odour that may be identified through ongoing monitoring of the sites performance.

    The consent holder will take all practicable steps to ensure these works, and ongoing review of these measures, will take place in accordance with the schedule of works stated in Appendix 1.  Appendix 1 shall only be amended in consultation with the Canterbury Regional Council.


    Submissions must be received by Environment Canterbury not later than 5 p.m. on Tuesday 22nd April 2014.


    A copy of your submission must be forwarded to the Applicant's address.
