Council says "no" to Penrith company's plans

The company blamed for the “Penrith Pong” have been told they can’t build a new storage facility on the outskirts of the town.

A number of objectors turned up at meeting of Eden District Council planners this morning.

They say the new facility could damage the local tourism industry as they maintain it would cause foul smells.

Leo Sawrij Ltd put in an application for outline plans to build a storage facility for tallow near Stainton.

The company renders animal carcasses for pet food and other products.

Council planners agreed with some of the objections and said they wouldn't allow the plans to go ahead.

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."
