Nothing could be further from the truth that the Dunnstown community embraces the massive eyesore and industrial plant of Cottonwood Springs propped right in the heart of what should be a beautiful rural landscape.
Not only were many in the community not consulted when approval to build this monstrosity was under consideration by Moorabool Shire, but there is a restriction on housing approval due to water restrictions preventing construction of new residences.
How then do we get a massive factory sitting on catchment water and sending it overseas?
Additionally, there have recently been pungent odours emanating from their site and encasing Dunnstown in a putrid smell.

If anyone had asked the Dunnstown community, they might get a totally different story for this blight on our landscape.
When my brother and I, who own the land on each side of the site, went to investigate where a putrid smell was coming from that has had the whole town choking, we were met and unceremoniously told to get off their property.
The biggest question is how on earth did this factory get built on top of this water catchment when it is almost impossible to get housing permits in the area?
How did the Moorabool shire let this happen?
