Watton Town Council received a message from Cranswick which has led to the Town Council asking the District Councillors to convene a meeting to which Cranswick, the Environment Agency and members of the public would be invited.

No public meeting has been called but a meeting with interested parties took place on 08.09.23. Cranswick acknowledged local frustrations and indicated their commitment to doing what they can to tackle reported odours. They are implementing an ‘Action Plan’ that, with EA support, should see improvements take effect over the next 4-6 months.

Cranswick also expressed a willingness to strengthen communication and dialogue with the local community on an ongoing basis. Cranswick have said they will establish a Community Liaison Group that will meet several times a year and give local residents and businesses the chance to raise concerns directly with Cranswick.
