Seafield smells | Don’t give up, please always complain

There continues to be cause for complaint by local residents due to ongoing nuisance odours from the Seafield Sewage Works.

Whilst Leith Links Residents Association and Leith Links Community Council continue to fight for a resolution it is vitally important that those affected by any nuisance odour report such instances, at the time, every time.

The more reports made the better.  Even if a neighbour or someone nearby phones & complains, you should still complain too.

      Hi Suzanne, We’ll pass this on to the bodies concerned, at the next Stakeholders meeting. Will get back to you. Where exactly do you live?

    Yes it’s a ringing noise. I followed it’s source to the gates of Seafield sewage works, where it was extremely loud. I live about 200 metres from the works,at Gumley Place, and I can hear it clearly at night.
