Have your say on West Sussex waste

Residents have until 5pm on Monday, August 13, to have their say on the future of waste in West Sussex.

Cllr Lionel Barnard, deputy leader of West Sussex County Council, said: “No matter how much we try to reduce the amount of waste we produce, sites are still required at which to sort, transfer, recycle, treat or dispose of the waste.”

One of the sites being considered for this is Brookhurst Wood, near Warnham.

Cllr Barnard added: “We appreciate that no one wants a waste site near them and we have tried to balance these understandable concerns with our future waste needs. Even with waste-reduction strategies, we need to properly manage waste. The sites we have selected will help to meet our future waste requirements. We wish to thank everyone for their views, which we will consider after the consultation closes.”

To take part in the consultation, complete the form at www.westsussex.gov.uk/mwdf, email mwdf@westsussex.gov.uk or post a form to Strategic Planning (Ref: Waste Local Plan), West Sussex County Council, County Hall, Chichester PO19 1RH.
