Chislet PC objects to the digestate pit

Chislet Parish Council today sent a letter of objection to Canterbury City Council (CCC) Planning and Enforcement to object to Planning Application 21/02265 for retrospective permission for the installation of a digestate storage ecobag bag with construction of bund.

Our full letter can be found here (click here). Councillors objected to the process by which the application has come about, pollution risk and traffic danger.

When voting on the approval of the letter one councillor declared an interest. Two councillors supported and six councillors objected to the application.

Missed bin collections - report to CCC

Chislet Parish Council is aware that the recycling collection in Upstreet did not take place last Thursday. It has been reported to City Councillor Carnac and collection will be made as soon as possible. The management of refuse collection has recently changed and CCC has acknowledged some conversion issues that have led to missed collections, even though the vast majority are apparently occurring as scheduled in our district. You are strongly encouraged to report a missed bin collection using CCC's website so that a profile of experience can be documented. To report a missed bin collection, click here
