09 August 2021Anglian Water - Waste Recycling Centre

An update from Anglian Water on works which is impacting the Water Recycling Centre near the village next to the M1.

Our Water Recycling Centre based at Great Billing is under-going essential maintenance which will allow this site to run more safely and efficiently. During this time, we have had to change our processes at the site near the M1 which may result in increased odours. This work will continue until October, after which things will return to normal.

In the meantime, to ensure that we continue to act as good and responsible neighbours within our region, we are exploring further ways to help reduce the odours from our Water Recycling Centre near Whilton and Long Buckby. Hot weather, which we’ve seen this year, can increase the likelihood of odours from wastewater. The nature of the work we do means that odours sometimes occur and we work hard to minimise any instances wherever we possibly can. We already have odour control systems and suppressants on site which are monitored regularly, and we have put further improvement measures in place at the site whilst this work is continuing. Residents are encouraged to contact Anglian Water when the smell is noticeable by calling 03457 145 145.

Please let me know if you have any questions and thank you in advance for your patience and understanding whilst we get things back to normal,

Kind regards,

Rose Shisler

Have your say on how your new council communicates

View the video: https://youtu.be/Ot4o53RKsYE 

People across West Northamptonshire are being encouraged to give their views on how their new council should keep them informed and updated on the many local services it provides.

West Northamptonshire Council (WNC) launched in April, replacing the previous councils covering Daventry, Northampton and South Northamptonshire and bringing all their services under one roof, from bin collections, housing, planning and highways to education, social care and public health.

The Council is now keen to hear from residents and businesses about how they currently find out news and information about its services and suggestions for how this can be improved to help shape the way it communicates in the future.

People can give their views by completing a short survey on the council’s consultation hub at West Northamptonshire Council - Citizen Space which launches today (Monday, 2 August) and runs until 30 August.

Paper copies of the survey will also be available at local libraries for people to complete and return.

Cllr Jonathan Nunn, Leader of West Northamptonshire Council, said: “We have a new Council with a fresh vision to make West Northamptonshire a great place to live, work, visit and thrive and it’s really important that we keep residents and businesses fully informed and engaged on this journey.

“We want to know how people currently hear from us about our work, activities and services, whether the communications methods we’re using are convenient and meet their needs, if they could be improved or there are new channels we need to look at.

“This short survey will provide us with valuable information to help us shape our communications offer as our new Council continues to develop, so I would encourage people to get involved and give their views.”

Alongside the online survey, paper copies are available to collect, complete and return at one of the following libraries: Brackley, Brixworth, Daventry, Deanshanger, Duston, Middleton Cheney, Northamptonshire Central, Towcester and Weston Favell.
