WE CAN’T STAND THE STENCH
A resident of Beaumont Court in Haverhill said she was dreading the thought of hot summers because of the stench coming from a nearby sewage plant.
The stink was much worse on hot days and Peta Reed said people living at the Bumpstead Road end of town had to stay indoors with their windows and doors shut.
The authorities said they were doing all they could to try and prevent the strong smells.
CANGLE JUNCTION PLANS SET FOR GO AHEAD
Suffolk county councillors were set to give the go ahead to plans to create a new roundabout at Cangle junction despite widespread objections.
The project would result in the Woolpack pub and New World restaurant being pulled down to make way for it.
Haverhill Town Council, Suffolk Preservation Society and the Local History Group had all objected to the proposal..
Despite that, the £1million proposal had been approved by St Edmundsbury Council and was recommended for approval by the county planning committee.
