Update on 2 Sisters

Councillors Bob Evans and Barry Warren have had a liaison meeting with the senior site management of 2 Sisters regarding a number of issues which have and are causing concern to various sections of our community.

We were also joined by the Environment Agency Officer responsible for the site. The main topic of discussion was odours from the site and works that have been carried out to try and resolve the problem.

Extensive works have been carried out and more are planned.

The Offal Bay Roof needs repair and when this is done hopefully it will lead to even less odour problems.

The weather has been holding up works as it has not been safe to work on the roof.

Weather permitting it is hoped to commence work on 9 March 2020.  There is a possibility of some odour escape during these works.

You are advised of this so that there can be some understanding during the period of these works but you should still report any problems to the Environment Agency on the Freephone number provided on the website.   0800 807060
