Christchurch could have its very own bog of eternal stench.​

An odour over parts of Linwood and neighbouring areas has been described as smelling like fish, rubbish bins and excrement​.

City councillor Yani Johanson is among hundreds who have made complaints to Environment Canterbury over the pong. ​

He told Chris Lynch on a scale of one to five the smell might be a two or three, but it's everyday and especially bad in summer. ​

The smell has been around for a decade and most likely coming from the organics plant.​

Christchurch City Councillor Yani Johanson says the removal of more on street car parks along Kilmore Street makes no sense.
He says, further more, he can't believe council voted in favour to introduce a cycle lane on Kilmore Street outside the Townhall, which will already be a congested area once it's up and running.
Mr Johanson told Chris Lynch the council is going to create areas that's are fundamentally dangerous trying to mix too many modes of transport on one street.
He says there's plenty of broken infrastructure with roads in the suburbs that aren't going to be renewed, but the council seems to hell-bent on spending a lot of money on changing the central city.

Councillors Yani Johanson and Deon Swiggs voted against this. Chris Lynch spoke to Yani Johanson, who is asking the question why are we gold plating the city when there are other areas that actually need work.

Play

It was all very last minute but we managed to get hold of CCC councillor Yani Johanson on the old dog ‘n bone for a discussion about Dave Henderson being made bankrupt. Looks like Dave won’t be offered the oppoortunity to buy back his properties that the Council bought off him, mainly due to the quite significant fact that he is now bankrupt, so what to do, what to do… The CCC has a lot to answer for really, $17 million down the gurgler.
