Consultation process

The implementation of a permitting scheme for vans and large trailers has been discussed with the Cabinet Member for Strategic Planning, Development Management, Strategic Housing, Operational Property and Waste and the Portfolio Holder for Waste. 

 

Officers have consulted other local authorities who have well established restrictions in place at their HRCs, including permit systems for vans and large trailers used by residents to access their sites.  Their experience is that similar permit schemes deliver savings and have a positive impact for the majority of residents visiting the sites through reduced congestion.

 

The Council’s waste management contractors, Hills Waste Solutions Ltd, who manage these sites on the Council’s behalf, have also been engaged throughout the development of these proposals.
