Fertiliser smell in village



Many residents have complained to the parish and district council about the overwhelming smell in the village following muck spreading in local fields last week.  We have received the following statement from the clerk to Clanfield Parish Council. 

The smell is treated human manure has been spread on the fields along the Hambledon Road area.   We understand that Southern Water has advised that the treatment should have finished this week.  The reason for the strong smell was that it was delivered and immediately spread, rather than being allowed to settle, therefore released ammonia. Apparently the waste is rigorously tested by Southern Water before release.
