The deadline for making comments on the In-Vessel Composting application is today, Wednesday 20 February. Comments made after this date might be considered but the only way to ensure your views are considered is to meet the deadline. The easiest way to do this is to view the application details online and click on the "Comment on application" link to make your comments online.
Residents at Monday's public meeting were unhappy about the Council not directly notifying them of the application. I have taken this issue up with the Head of Development Services, who says that they follow the consultation arrangements set out in the Council's Statement of Community Involvement.

"all adjoining occupiers having a common boundary with the site, and properties directly opposite. All occupiers of land within 100m of the vehicular and pedestrian access points (measured linearly along the road, including properties on the opposite side of the road). If the subject of an enforcement investigation, the complainant."
