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.

Reasons for signing

  • As a visitor to Penrith the smell is quite unpleasant locals must find it over powering at times could the company try to find a solution that contains the odour? Without compromising employment in the area?
  • Highly visible plumes coming from the chimney day & night. A blight on such a beautiful area. Useless council don`t seem to be doing anything to stop it or hold the owners to account. As for the company Liaison group, who wants some PR blurb/ token consultation? Just get rid of the smell & the visible chimney emissions. Council need to be seen to be taking residents concerns seriously & enforcing compliance of all above. If they can`t comply, close them down! Start to question their commitment.
  • If it's allowed to expand any further then Eden District Council better have a good rationale as to why this is justified. It should never have been allowed right next to a town anyway.
