Westerleigh smell (UPDATE)

Over 30 residents came to the drop-in event in the Village Hall to learn about Wessex Water's plan to eliminate sewer flooding  and the smell in the village.

Wessex, Tulip and Environment Acency representatives were on hand (with Parish Councillors) to explain the route of the new 1.6 km long sewer pipe, which will be dedicated to Tulip trade effluent, and will bypass the village completely, joining the main Yate 600 mm sewer system about 250 metres north of the Nibley Lane junction.

The scheme will cost £1 000 000 and will start in September 2018. We do not yet have a completion date, but Wessex representatives suggest that it will take 3 to 6 months.
