Odour in West Fife

Fife Council Environmental Health are investigating the odour from Muir Dean former Opencast site due to the spreading of chicken manure.

It is legal to spread chicken manure but there are controls in place, which must be followed, and we’re investigating whether any/which of these controls have been ignored.

Unfortunately, once this type of material has been spread, it is very difficult to stop the smell from happening. Which means the problem will be there until the smell disappears.

We have been advised that the spreading was completed on Wednesday 27/5/20

Please be assured that Environmental Health are doing everything they can to rectify the situation.

We will continue to update social media if there is more information available.
