THE CHALLENGE !
The challenge is to overcome the languid Penrith 'establishment' system which allowed animal rendering, with all it's issues, to grow on a HUGE industrial scale on the edge of our town.
That's why this campaign has lobbied Eden District Council, the local planning authority, to STOP approving further expansion at the plant.
However, the council, with NO consultation, approved through 'delegted' powers (ie: officers decided) the building of a new £20million multi fuel thermal oxidiser. The council and councillors have let the people of Penrith down !
A 1,153 name online petition (link to sign at the bottom of the page) has been presented to the council. The petition is still open for more signatures as EDC still refuses to accept it's responsibility for Omega's uncontrolled growth.
