Full story:Funky chickens must be stopped
By Sean Nicholls July 31 2003
Sydneysiders are kicking up an enormous stink, and it's all over the smell coming from their local charcoal chicken shop.
Councils are fielding a rising number of complaints about the thick, pungent smoke, which gets worse in summer.
So bad has the situation become that the NSW Environment Protection Authority has authorised a grant of $60,000 to fix it.
In a 12-month project led by Waverley Council and involving 10 other southern Sydney councils and students from the University of NSW, different methods of cooking chickens will be analysed to establish best practice guidelines for businesses to minimise the smell.
