Episode Info: STITTSVILLE - The Stittsville Village Association is 'disappointed' by the city's approval of the site plan for an expansion of the Carp Road dump, according to president Tanya Hein. The site plan had been approved October 28th, but work cannot begin on the expansion until 38 conditions on the approval are met. Tanya Hein told 960 NEWS that her organization was expecting more detail in the site plan application. "The plan wasn't as comprehensive as we thought it should have been... it did meet sort of the minimum requirements that it had to do I suppose, for the city's approval," said Hein "[the site plan] was sort of a generalized, hypothetical view of what might be there." Hein said that the SVA would like to see more transparency in the way the city approves these types of applications. "It's not a particularly public process and that's been frustrating. The public liaison committee committee is probably the most un-public committee I've seen." Hein said that an active landfill could pose plenty of negative environmental impacts, as well as present odour and property value issues.
