Liz holds public meeting on smell from Biffa

On Friday 14th September I held another 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 received a number of complaints over the summer months 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 continue to do everything I can to solve this problem for all of the local residents effected.
