HEDON IS A PLACE OF AMBITIONS! We want to celebrate and build upon our history and heritage and create an even better place for people to live, work and visit!
We have an active community of groups and individuals that are striving to improve the quality and enjoyment of life for all its residents. Hedon residents have great ideas about transforming the town; its shopping and leisure experience – whilst preserving its character and opposing inappropriate development. Hedon even harbours a great ambition to bring water back to the Haven!
Hedon has the talent, the ideas and the imagination to take us into a positive future… We have lots to look forward to…
… and then there’s the smell!
Only months after HOTI successfully fought off the plans to build a waste burning incinerator we now face a new fight – against the foul-smelling stink from Yorkshire Water’s lamella tanks at its Waste Water Treatment Works.
The smells – which Yorkshire Water told us in 2000 would not exist – have ruined local residents enjoyment of the summer weeks. And there is reason to believe that the health of some residents have been adversely affected by the most penetrating of odours.
Yorkshire Water has apologised for the odours and claim that things will improve when the new £3.5m odour control unit is built – but they seem to be unable to tell us that smells will be eliminated.
The Hedon Blog has responded to the concerns of its readers and commentators by launching a petition that urges East Riding and Hull City Councils to treat Yorkshire Water and its smells as a public nuisance and use the legal system to force the company to eliminate its odours or suffer the consequences for its ‘criminal’ acts.
Are you affected by the smells? Of course these smells have no boundaries and also impact upon Preston, Paull, South West Holderness and East Hull. If you are affected, we are encouraging you to sign our petition – the first step in a campaign to force Yorkshire Water to comply with its earlier “No smells at Saltend” claims
