If you have not responded to the Council consultation on the new proposed bin hubs please do so quickly as the window closes on 4th December. This applies to parking zones N1, N2, N3 and N5.
Some of the sites of the bins and the sheer numbers proposed understandably have caused a degree of alarm amongst residents, so it is important to have your say. According to officers and the terms of the report, choice of location of the bin hubs is based on the following criteria:
- safety – ensuring the bin hubs are safe for people recycling, pedestrians, cyclists and drivers
- walking distance to the bins
- neighbourhood sizes – ensuring there are enough bins for everyone to use
- placing bins on the road rather than pavements where possible
- reducing street clutter
