Tissues and Kitchen roll

Covid-19: Tissues and kitchen roll cannot be recycled and should not be put into your recycling boxes. This is especially important during this time to reduce the spread of infection. Recycling boxes containing tissues will not be emptied to protect our staff from the risk of infection.

If your box has not been emptied for this reason, please put the tissues in your black bin and put your recycling back out on your next collection day.

If you have additional recycling this can be put out for collection next to your box in a suitable, clearly labelled container or carrier bag. Please separate materials in the usual way. This container will be returned to you.

How to deal with your waste if you’re self-isolating

The Government has advised that anyone who is self-isolating with symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19), including those with a diagnosis of the virus, should treat their household waste as follows:

·        Personal waste e.g. used tissues, and disposable cleaning cloths can be stored securely within disposable rubbish bags. These bags should be placed into another bag, tied securely and kept separate from other waste within your own room. This should be put aside for at least 72 hours before being put in your usual external household waste bin.

·        Other household waste can be disposed of as normal.

The advice also says that when cleaning you should use your usual household products like detergents and bleach as these will be very effective at getting rid of the virus on surfaces. Clean frequently touched surfaces.

For more information, read the Government’s stay at home guidance for people with confirmed or possible coronavirus (COVID-19) infection.

Residents are asked to keep bulky items, DIY waste and other waste they usually take to the recycling centre stored safely at home until the sites re open. Residents are asked not to put items out with the kerbside collections as they will not be collected.

Dropping items outside a closed HWRC or on any public space will be classed as fly tipping.

Council calls for stronger action by Cheshire West and Chester against housing developer

January 26th, 2019 | Posted by Sarah Morgan in News | Uncategorized - (Comments Off on Council calls for stronger action by Cheshire West and Chester against housing developer)

Lower Peover Parish Council are calling for Cheshire West and Chester Council (CWAC) to take stronger action following months of misery for residents living adjacent to the new development.

 

Having initially been refused planning permission by CWAC, with strong local opposition which was supported by Cllr Mark Stocks, the developer Harvey Homes won an appeal to the Planning Inspectorate to build 30 homes at a site adjacent to Holly Tree Drive, with a new entrance to be built on Middlewich Road.

 

From the start of the building early in September 2018, when earthworks were started by contractor Westshield, the site has solely been accessed via Holly Tree Drive, with HGVs driving up and down Holly Tree Drive on a daily basis ever since. On some days residents have logged up to 50 truck movements a day consisting of mostly 30 ton tippers carrying hard core, articulated trucks delivering huge concrete drains and ready mix concrete deliveries. Due to the limited width of Holly Tree Drive, trucks have been seen mounting the kerb to pass, unloading onto the residential street and blocking residents’ driveways and pavements. This has led to resident concerns about pedestrian safety.

 

Cheshire West and Chester Planning Enforcement Department issued a Breach of Condition Notice on September 21 to Harvey Homes, giving the builders 28 days to stop using Holly Tree Drive as a construction site access, but this has been challenged by the developer and an additional application to vary the condition was submitted and subsequently refused.

 

With the builders now blaming delays on the Highways department to give the go ahead for the new access, CWAC state that they are awaiting action from the Westshield before signing off the agreement. The action from the Planning Enforcement department now lies with the legal team and the timeframe for action is unlikely to provide an outcome before the access to Middlewich Road is completed.  The stalemate between the contractors and the Borough Council now leads to increasing frustrations for residents caught in between.

 

Cllr Louise Corlett, Chairperson of Lower Peover Parish Council said: ‘’The Parish Council are extremely concerned about the use of Holly Tree Drive by Westshield to gain access to the building site. We are unhappy that residents are being subjected to daily inconvenience with over 50 articulated lorries going down their narrow street every day. This was a quiet, calm and safe residential area of Lower Peover but, since September, the neighbourhood peace and the safety of residents has been put at risk. Residents’ driveways have often been blocked, access by car or on foot is often disrupted by lorries and the size, noise and weight of these lorries mean that there is considerable concern about the health and safety of the residents. This situation needs to be addressed urgently ‘’

 

Cllr Mark Stocks adds ‘’ I completely support the residents in Lower Peover and their concerns regarding access to the new housing development in Lower Peover. The council should be taking enforcement action against the developer and ensuring access to the site is via Middlewich Road only. the council should with immediate effect put a stop notice on the site until the completion of the new access. It is unacceptable to use Holly Tree Drive and Birchwood Drive to access site it both dangerous an unsafe for all residents’’
