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.

Foster Park

‘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/

  1. My grandparents Edward and Henrietta Southwell lived (I believe in Mary Street) in the 1950’s, he worked in a tannery I believe. I stayed with them for a while and remember going to Keithley school, I remember my grandad playing bowls in the park and also the railway

  2. Just driven around the corner next to hoyles garage and they have removed the roadworks there.great except the road is an absolute disgrace there has been no cleaning of mud and stones and the tarmac that has been put over the roadworks is unbelievable how they can call that a road surface I do not know.
    As a motorcyclist this is an accident waiting to happen .

  3. Wondered if something could be done about the state of old road, mainly by the farm. It is very unsafe after the recent heavy rains and floods, not safe to walk or ride on
