CLOSURE OF SEAFORD HOUSEHOLD WASTE SITE IS UNNECESSARY
September 9 2014.
Liberal Democrat Councillor Carolyn Lambert has condemned the County Council’s decision to close Seaford Household Waste site for four days a week.
Councillor Lambert says: “The County Council’s proposal to close the waste tip met with almost universal disagreement and huge protest from the residents of Seaford. The campaign group worked extremely hard to show that as the biggest town in the District, Seaford needs and deserves to have its waste site kept open.
"The County Council claims that it is saving money by this closure but Liberal Democrat budget proposals made earlier in the year identified funding to keep the waste site open and still meet the necessary overall budget reductions. The Conservative administration refused to even consider these proposals.
"I will continue to work with the campaign group and will be asking for details of the savings the County Council claims to have made.”
