Resolving the odour issues at Walleys Quarry

What next?

Council officers, including the Chief Executive, will be working closely with Walleys Quarry Limited (WQL) to ensure that all aspects of the agreement are implemented.

The council will continue to actively monitor the prevalence of odours off site and in the event that there are further instances of statutory nuisance identified by the council, the council’s enforcement policy will guide the process to be followed. This could ultimately result in the council seeking permission from the Secretary of State for the Environment to prosecute. Such permission is required as the Environment Agency is primarily responsible for regulating this site. More information on these processes is available.
