Two new sites for waste dis­posal

Hinckley Times - - NEWS -

TWO ex­tra sites could be used as tips for con­struc­tion waste in the county thanks to an up­date to the of­fi­cial blue­print for quar­ry­ing, refuse and re­cy­cling.

The Le­ices­ter­shire County Coun­cil draft min­eral and waste de­vel­op­ments plan is to be con­sid­ered by coun­cil­lors on the scru­tiny com­mit­tee and at a later full cab­i­net meet­ing.

The plan lasts up un­til 2031 and if the changes are ac­cepted will in­clude Ib­stock Quarry and Hus­bands Bos­worth Quarry as part of an up­date into how ex­ca­vated waste ma­te­rial from con­struc­tion will be dealt with.

The county is fac­ing a short­fall in suit­able sites ac­cord­ing to lat­est fore­casts. A pub­lic con­sul­ta­tion will fol­low af­ter which the plan will be sub­mit­ted for in­de­pen­dent ex­am­i­na­tion by a Gov­ern­ment plan­ning in­spec­tor.
