Stop The Smell

I have received a number of reports about a deeply unpleasant smell drifting across North Weald, Moreton and parts of Ongar. The reported 'stench' is believed to come from a commercial composting site on the outskirts of North Weald and I am calling on the Environment Agency to take action to Stop The Smell.

I have been sent some extremely useful data from a resident who has been compiling a list of dates over the last three years when the smell has been particularly bad, and this has enabled me to present a very strong case to the Environment Agency for more to be done to tackle the problem.


Update on Pylons and Composting

While constituency casework keeps me and my office staff busy every day of every week, there are some issues which need more of a push – and this can take some time.

My ongoing campaign for a Weight Restriction Order to be introduced on Ongar High Street continues. Good progress was being made with Essex County Council’s Cabinet Member for Highways, Cllr Lee Scott, who has now moved to be Cabinet Member for Planning A Growing Economy.
