Erlings Works – Omega Proteins
Bradford Council Environmental Health responded recently to an email sent from the Town Council about recent smells from Erlings Works.
“In relation to odours emanating from the Omega Proteins Ltd, it is still a possibility. Recent odour testing at Omega Proteins Ltd revealed that one of the biofilters (odour abatement equipment) was not performing as effectively, in terms of odour removal , as would be expected. Consequently Omega Proteins Ltd will be replacing biofilter media towards the end of September (weather dependent) .During this period of time there may be an elevated level of odour.
Regular visits are made to Omega Proteins Ltd by officers from the Environmental Health service and complaints relating to odour are investigated.”
If you want to report or complain about smells from the plant or want to report any spillages from wagons please click on the link below for who to contact.

‘Friends of Foster Park’ – there has been chat on Facebook ‘New Living in Denholme’ group recently about the state of the Park and considering the cutbacks that Bradford Council could be making in the future it may be an idea to form a ‘Friends of ‘ group to join forces to improve the state of the park and work with the Council Wardens and Bradford Council.
There is info about Friends of Parks groups in Bradford athttp://www.bradforddistrictparks.org/friends/
