Strategic Review of Seafield Sewage Plant announced

The Evening News has just published an article outlining a new strategic review commissioned by Scottish Government (Rosanna Cunningham, Cabinet Secretary for the Environment) relating to the odour nuisances from Seafield sewage works.

The photo here shows Ben MacPherson MSP, Chair of the Seafield Stakeholders Group, who has been working with Ms Cunningham and with the local community “to properly tackle the issues at Seafield, which affect many of my constituents.” He said the review would engage with the community and also include consideration of on-site operational and capital options. “This is a strong and significant step forward towards further reducing instances of odour nuisances and working towards eliminating them. It will investigate the situation at Seafield fully and determine the necessary action that needs to be taken to deal with the issues and improve day-to-day life for the community.”
