STOP the Penrith 'pong'

STOP the Penrith 'pong'

STOP approving planning applications from Omega Proteins who are polluting the air with disgusting, nasty, sickening, obnoxious, smells. #penrithpong

Why is this important?

Disgusting smell pollutes the air residents breathe. It is sickening, so residents are objected - without choice - to the horrible smell in their nostrils, in their homes, on their clothes. Plus, the smell distracts tourists to the area ie: it harms the tourist trade.

Penrith, Eden District, Cumbra

Reasons for signing

  • I live on Barco and the smell carries across and it is horrendous. This site has been allowed to increase in size over the years when it should have been moved maybe to the east fellside or somewhere remote where there are no houses and tourists.
  • We should not have to live with such a nausious smell that is sickening. Why is it allowed?
  • two weekends recently it was so bad I couldn't eat anything all morning. Thought about running a slimming club based on taking people to Castletown in the morning so they wouldn't be able to eat breakfast or lunch
