Newhaven incinerator lorry depot plans approved after locals' sleep demands

Lorry depot plans have been given the go-ahead – but with restrictions so locals’ sleep is not disturbed.

Veolia applied to create a space for up to 20 vehicles on land next to its incinerator in North Quay, Newhaven, adding its existing depot in Shoreham is not big enough.

Under the plans presented to Lewes District Council, half the lorries would leave the site between 4am and 4.30am Monday to Saturday.

But councillors proposed its operation time was put back to 7am on weekdays and 7.30am on Saturdays.

Councillor Peter Gardiner, who represents South Heighton on the local authority, said: "This is a great relief for local residents.

“We are sure Veolia can organise their work so they do not need to start at four in the morning as they wanted to.”

A compromise, excellent news if only the arrogant greens realised they were elected to provide services to the people who voted for them (as well as those who didn't) instead of pandering to the travellers and car haters in "our" City

I think Hove Actually was saying "look, Greens, how other councils behave" - but I'm a little drunk so I may be wrong.

I suspect this is from the person who's always banging on about the water park being the solution to Newhaven's regeneration.
Well, it's not , as is neither the out-of-town housing estate nor yet another supermarket, this time situated on a road to nowhere.
What Newhaven needed was the major redevelopment of the the port and harbour side, a proposal which has yet again been been turned down.
The Greens may not be represented in Newhaven, but I doubt they could have made a stupider decision than the one taken by those members of Lewes District council's planning committee who voted to ignore the overwhelming majority of views expressed by Newhaven residents - yet again!
