Don’t Hold Your Nose – Pick up the phone!!

 

The majority of residents in Trowell are aware that the village is regularly blighted with unpleasant smells emanating from industrial operations in nearby Erewash.  The industries involved are regulated by the Environment Agency but to enable them to take action the EA need to be kept advised of any incidents that occur as soon as possible.  That is where everyone in Trowell comes in – if you smell these noxious odours please pick up the phone & report it.  It is a FREE phone number 0800 807060 so it will cost you nothing but your time. Online? – you can also email the EA on enquiries@environment-agency.gov.uk .

It has been suggested that you use the following wording when reporting this issues – “I believe that the wind is in a south westerly direction and the smell is coming from an industrial estate in the Borough of Erewash.”

Many thanks in advance for your help with this problem.
