Liz holds public meeting on Biffa Stink

On Friday 22nd June I held a public meeting with local councillors, Annette Byrne and Vijay Riyait, the Deputy City Mayor for Environment, Public Health & Health Integration, Adam Clarke, as well as representatives from Leicester City Council, the Environment Agency and Biffa to discuss the smell produced by the nearby Biffa plant.

My office has recently received a number of complaints regarding the smells which have been an ongoing problem for a number of years, and I find that local residents are having to put up with it completely unacceptable.

I will be holding meetings with both Biffa and Leicester City Council before meeting residents again in September to provide an update.
