Leo Group Limited "disappointed" at council's decision

Omega Proteins Limited, who are behind the controversial extension plans, maintain that they have an odour management plan in place at Wildriggs.

They also say that the Environmental Health team found their proposal acceptable.

"We are disappointed that the local authority has not been able to support local economic development by refusing our application to invest further in the Penrith area."
