New Year, same smell

International City residents holding their noses.

Residents living in International City's England cluster say the issue of their overflowing sewerage and smelly streets is as bad as ever.

For the last nine months the development's on-site Sewage Treatment Plant (STP) has been overflowing, due to capacity issues. The problem has become worse for residents, who say they are now gagging at the stench.

Shops in and around the England cluster remain empty, with for sale signs hanging in the windows. Rows upon rows of empty shop-fronts overlook the stagnant sewage pools, which have turned an entire car park green due to continual flooding.
