Last day for East Lindsey residents to give views on green waste scheme

Public consultation on the Green Waste Service operated by East Lindsey District Council comes to an end today.

The proposals have been out for consultation since July 21. The consultation closes today at 5pm.

Since 2014 the Council has provided the fortnightly Green Waste Service all year around on a subscription basis, with those who use the service making a contribution to the service's cost. Subscribers currently pay £25 per year - around £1 per collection.

The service currently has around 32,000 subscribers generating £800,000 per year. The service costs the Council £1,246,000 to provide, meaning it is subsidised by £446,000 per year.

The Council is seeking resident's views on a number of proposals, including whether or not they believe the full cost of the service should be met by service users in the future, as opposed to it being subsidised.

There will be limited parking in Lincoln from today as work continues on the city's new £30m transport hub.

The council is closing three central car parks to allow construction to take place.

One, NCP St Mary's Street car park, closed on Saturday. Two others, Thornbridge and Sincil Street, will close tonight.

A document outlining parking availability elsewhere has been released.

"This major regeneration project will transform the city centre. However, while the work takes place there will be some unavoidable disruption and a reduction in the number of available car parking spaces in the city. The council is keeping its Thornbridge and Sincil Street car parks open over the bank holiday, but will close them at the end of Monday August 29, to allow the construction work to go ahead. The NCP St Mary's Street car park will close from 7pm on Saturday, August 27."
