HEDON TOWN COUNCIL opens its doors tonight at the Town Hall for 30 minutes, to let the public ‘have its say’ on local issues.
The Hedon Blog is encouraging people to attend and raise the issue of the SMELLS from the Yorkshire Water Waste Treatment Works at Saltend.
Whilst the Town Councillors are doing their very best to represent residents’ interests regarding the foul odours – it will only strengthen their case if local people are actively engaged in trying to find a solution to the problem.
On these pages, and on our Facebook Page, it is clear that local people want to step up the campaign against the foul odours that disrupt our quality of life.
Julie Shepherd asks: “Why can’t the stink plant be fined for their leakages?”
Neil Shillito and Dean Robson both agree that more “direct action” should be taken with a protest being held outside the Yorkshire Water plant.
Ed, the Editor of the Holderness Heartbeat, sums up the frustration of many local people in his comments in the latest issue: “I believe we should close Yorkshire Water at Saltend as they’ve degenerated our quality of life & should be charged with ‘Crimes against Holderness’. I’m sick of their disgusting odours – No excuses, CLOSE!”
The meeting is at the Town Hall (between the Alexandra Hall and Allison Hall) TONIGHT from 7pm – 7:30pm. Anybody wanting to attend to protest this issue please meet outside at 6:55pm.
