West Lindsey: Virtual planning approves central waste depot
The new purpose built facility will secure the future of waste collections and street cleansing operations in the district.
As previously reported last year, the Council’s Corporate Policy and Resources Committee scrutinised the plans, which were unanimously given cross-party support.
Coun Giles McNeill, Leader of West Lindsey District Council has welcomed the news.
He said: “I am pleased to see plans for our new central depot, which has been long overdue, are progressing well.
“Our aim is to ensure our award winning waste and recycling services continue to run as efficiently as possible as more homes are built over the years.
“The depot would be the main office for Operational Services Team to co-ordinate waste services within the district and home to the waste collection fleet and operatives.
“I hope that we can complete the build by late Spring 2021.”
The Council’s current depot facilities opened in the 1970s and are no longer fit for purpose.
