Councillors back plans to open Brighton waste depot site in Hollingdean for longer
3:43pm Wednesday 7th August 2013 in News
A waste depot site’s operating hours have been extended – despite concerns from dozens of locals that it will impact on their lives.
Brighton and Hove City Council wanted to increase the operating hours at its waste transfer and recycling site in Upper Hollingdean Road, Brighton.
The local authority claimed the plan to allow access from 7am to 10pm, including weekends and bank holidays, will improve the service and lead to savings.
The move would mean household waste would be collected on bank holidays for the first time But more than 60 locals opposed it claiming it would lead to more noise and dust, as well as truck movements at antisocial hours.
The decision was voted through by the council’s planning committee this afternoon with five votes for, four against and three abstentions.
See The Argus tomorrow for a full report and reaction to the decision.
