Residents have their say

Last reviewed:

Local residents and stakeholders have had their say on our plans to upgrade Deephams Sewage Works.

During our seven-week, phase 2 public consultation, which ran from 18 February to 8 April 2014, we held 11 drop-in sessions at local venues and spoke to over 900 people about our proposals for the upgrade.

We also handed out more than 2400 leaflets at Edmonton Green and Silver Street stations, as well as presenting our proposals to over 180 local people at community meetings in the local area.

The overwhelming majority of responses to the consultation supported our proposals for the upgrade and most respondents supported our plans to significantly reduce the smell from the sewage works.

However, the London Borough of Enfield and many local residents wanted us to do more to reduce the smell as much as possible and, following the consultation, we have developed our plans so that we will be able to reduce the smell from the sewage works even further.

This will mean that the number of properties in the area most affected by the smell will be reduced by 99 per cent
