Seafield odours

Many residents within our area report that they have been adversely affected by nuisance foul odours from the Seafield Waste Water Treatment Works operated by Scottish Water and Veolia Water UK.

Leith Links Community Council is acutely aware of these concerns. We are continually and actively involved in campaigning to improve matters. For the latest update on events, you can read here feedback from our meeting with Scottish Government (June 2017). We are members of the Seafield Stakeholders Group which meets regularly to discuss matters relating to the works. See feedback from latest meeting here.

We would encourage any residents who are adversely affected by nuisance foul odours from the works to ensure that this is reported, at the time, on each and every occasion.

Please report sewage type smells to the City of Edinburgh Council using these details:

Please report burning rubber type smells to the Scottish Environmental Protection Agency:

The Leith Links Residents Association (LLRA) has always been very active in campaigning and seeking a long term resolution to this issue, and they comment very regularly on Facebook.
