NEWHAVEN TOWN COUNCIL JOINS SEAFORD TIP CLOSURE PROTEST

November 18 2013.


Newhaven Town Council has formally objected to the closure of Seaford tip, which is one of the proposals contained in the East Sussex Waste Strategy Review.


The Council felt that the closure of this site would:

• Lead to long traffic queues at the site at Newhaven, especially at weekends, which in turn would create a traffic hazard on the A26.

• Lead to a deterioration in air quality in Newhaven due to queuing vehicles waiting to enter the site with their engines running

• Reduce recycling rates amongst residents of Seaford because of the increased difficulty in reaching the site at Newhaven
 
• Lead to increased fly tipping in Seaford because of the increased difficulty in reaching the site at Newhaven

The Town Mayor of Newhaven, Councillor Julie Carr said: “The closure of the busy Seaford tip would not only affect Seaford’s residents – it will also badly affect people in Newhaven. We want as many local people as possible to sign the online petition and/or respond to the online consultation being run by the County Council”.
