Local resident Balint Bodroghy visited the Hollingdean MRF (Materials Recovery Facility) of Veolia on 01/12/16.
The council voted on 29th November to the installation of communal rubbish bins in all the historic squares. They will also be installing communal recycling bins in Palmeira Square and Adelaide Crescent.
The Friends of Palmeira & Adelaide received 70 responses, approx 30% of our Members, to the survey regarding the proposed communal bins and the following are the results. This gives us all an idea of how the residents feel about this issue.
The Environment, transport and sustainability committee will be meeting at 4pm on Tuesday, 29th November in the council chamber of Hove Town Hall to discuss the outcomes of Cityclean’s consultation on introducing refuse and recycling bins into the Square and Crescent.
The Council has today circulated a letter to all residents confirming that the date for return of the consultation questionnaire has been extended until Sunday, 18th September. If you’ve not done so already, we would urge you to complete either the paper questionnaire or to go to www.brighton-hove.gov.uk/communalrecycling and have your say.
We all want cleaner streets but the council seem to be disregarding residents’ views by sending out a very basic questionnaire that doesn’t include previous consultations, advice and detailed suggestions from residents.
To prevent a repeat of this, you need to call 101 or fill out the Sussex Police online form to report it.
David Ward and David Sewell kindly attend our regular LAT meetings with other local resident groups, on behalf of FOPA. Key points for June’s meeting are below:
On 15th March the City Infrastructure team will be asking Brighton and Hove Council’s Environmental, Transport and Sustainability Committee to authorise a consultation about installing communal rubbish bins in Adelaide Crescent and Palmeira Square. Brunswick and Sussex Squares will be consulted at the same time.
Hove Police have contacted FOPA to inform members & where possible all residents. Apparently there is a new problem with rough sleepers getting into the buildings in order to find somewhere to sleep. To do this they are often using the ‘Trade button’ on the intercom as they have discovered that in many cases it is on a 24 hour availability.
