Re-cycle Plastic and Cardboard

recycle_symbolVictoria residents will, at last, be able to re-cycle Plastic & Cardboard as part of the normal collection service.

Households which currently have a weekly household waste collection will receive re-usable brown and white woven sacks for their plastic bottles and cardboard.

The sacks, being delivered from next week (June 10), have letters in them giving detailed information about what types of plastic and cardboard can be recycled. The letters also inform residents that the new recycling service will take place on the same day as their current refuse/recycling collections.recycle-img

It is hoped that collecting these additional materials will improve recycling in areas where it tends to be lower. Currently Sefton’s borough-wide recycling rate stands at 40.8%.

Funding for the new scheme is taken from Government money and comes ahead of Sefton’s statutory obligation to introduce plastics and cardboard recycling across the borough by 2015.

 

Sefton Council’s “Preferred Option” for the Local Plan

Planning Matters

Planning Matters

New ToryLibDem Planning legislation would leave developers free to build more or less wherever they wanted unless  Council’s  have an approved Local Plan specifying where development would be allowed.

Sefton Council’s Local Plan has been developed by Council Planning officers, headed by Alan Lunt and will be proposed to the Planning Committee on Wednesday next week. Prior to that planning committee members will visit each site.

There will then be a public consultation on the proposals where everyone will be able to make their views known.

The Plan is due for publication in June/Jul 2014 to be submitted to the secretary of state in Sep 2014 will cover development until 2030

The areas shown in the plans below would allow for 339 new properties in the areas surrounding Crosby in the 15 years from 2015. Indicated below as SF4 19, SF4 20 and SF4 21GB List
