10 May 2020Councils working to re-open waste sites
The city and county councils say they are working hard to re-open some of their recycling and household waste sites later this month.
Under new Government guidelines, sites can re-open for waste that can’t be stored safely at home.
Leicestershire County Council says it will open the gates on Monday, 18 May – at seven sites over seven days a week. The county sites opening are at Barwell, Lount, Market Harborough, Melton Mowbray, Mountsorrel, Oadby and Whetstone.
The seven county sites will be open to county residents only. The county council is also looking to introduce a booking system for their sites.
Leicester City Council will open its Gypsum Close site for five days a week, starting on Wednesday, 20 May.
The city council has also re-opened its large bulky waste collection service, which city residents can book online, and it continues to operate a weekly refuse and kerbside recycling service.
The city council’s other site at Freemen’s Common remains closed.
People are being asked to only go to the sites if stored waste is becoming unsafe at home and at risk of causing injury, illness or harm.
Both councils are working closely with other local authorities in the region around co-ordinating the re-opening of sites so people don’t travel to neighbouring areas to dispose of waste.
Social distancing will be in operation at all city and county sites, and plans will also include traffic management arrangements.
There will be restrictions to the type of items which people will be able to bring to county locations - so some waste types will still have to wait.

10 April 2020Sutton Cheney Parish Council Statement regarding Coronavirus
Sutton Cheney Parish Council has suspended monthly meetings from April until further notice due to the government guidance on Coronavirus and to protect the health of members and residents. There will be an extraordinary meeting of the Parish Council to put temporary emergency procedures in place to ensure that business can continue during this period to maintain public open spaces to ensure staff and contractors are paid. The government is looking at a longer-term solution and the Parish Council will review its position in light of any further advice.
In the meantime, the Parish Council would like to thank all residents who are pulling together to help the vulnerable and those self-isolating in our Parish. The coming months will be difficult for us all, but by continuing to work together we can strive to protect our residents.
23 March 2020Parish Council Meeting Cancelled
The extraordinary meeting scheduled to be held tomorrow (Tuesday 24th March) has been cancelled following advice from Government and NALC’s advice issued on 20th March.
Although no alternative advice has been issued regarding how Parish Councils can make any legal decisions in the absence of full Council meetings, NALC have advised that these exceptional times are calling for exceptional measures.
As it is urgent that the Council resolves whether to delegate authority of power to the Clerk so that the Council can continue to function, the Council has opted to vote remotely on agenda items set for the meeting scheduled tomorrow. This includes:
- delegating authority to the Clerk to make decisions on behalf of the Council where such a decision cannot be reasonably deferred and must be made in order to comply with a commercial or statutory deadline.
The Clerk will keep a record of thie Council's decision - if you have any further questions, please get in touch.
