Energy giant Woodside has reached a compromise with a West Australian council over a contentious fly-in fly-out accommodation village in the Pilbara region.

The company wanted a 30-year approval and 700 beds at its Bay Village development but that was opposed by the City of Karratha, which has instead endorsed a 604-bed camp with a 10-year approval and five-year extension option.

The council has secured other concessions to encourage Woodside workers to integrate more with the community and use local services, including no bar facilities within the camp.
