A POULTRY farm at Silverdale has sparked outrage among some residents in the area.
Neil Lindemann who lives about 700 metres from the poultry farm on Prenzler Road, is disgusted with the smell coming from the farm.
“It's the foulest odour you could ever imagine. It just makes you sick every time you breathe it in,” Mr Lindemann said.
Despite several talks with the farm's owner since he began operating the farm almost five weeks ago, Mr Lindemann said it appeared little was getting done.
“The smell went away for a little bit but now the fans on the northern side must get switched on at night because I wake up to the smell,” he said.
“It's just absolutely disgusting and even my family won't come and stay here anymore because they can't stand the smell either.”
Scenic Rim Councillor Heather Wehl said she was aware of the issue and doing everything in her power to stop it.
“Complaints like this can be time-consuming to investigate as we have to follow the correct processes, which can sometimes involve a number of different departments,” Cr Wehl said.
“Council takes the issue of compliance very seriously and any business operating outside of its stipulated conditions will be subject to a full council investigation and may result in prosecution.”
The Queensland Times made several unsuccessful attempts to contact the poultry farm's owner yesterday.
