Flynn welcomes court action on Mullaghglass landfill site

Sinn Féin MLA Orlaithí Flynn has welcomed initiation of court action to compel the responsible agencies to take action on an odour from the Mullaghglass landfill site.

 The Sinn Féin MLA said:

“Confirmation that legal action has been taken by residents in West Belfast and Lisburn to make the Environment Agency and the Lisburn & Castlereagh City Council act to address and eradicate an odour from the Mullaghglass landfill site is welcome.

“The inaction of the responsible agencies is disgraceful.

"It is unfortunate that this inaction has now left local people with no other option but to take legal action to compel them to do their job.

“Sinn Féin will continue to support the right of local residents to live in a clean environment and to enjoy good air quality.”
