Have your say

We have the May County Council elections coming up on the 6th of May to elect County Councillors to West Sussex County Council, , as it’s a run up to an election I won’t be political, the only thing I would say is which ever party  you vote for, just ensure you do vote, it does make a difference and you should certainly check with the various candidates and hold them to their promises. if you have a busy lifestyle or live some distance from the polling station you can register for a postal vote or a proxy vote if you are away telephone 01903 737616 .

The latest on the Bypass, Highways England has sent out a circular letter confirming that Public Consultation on the various route options for the bypass will start in the Summer of this year,  subject to consultation there will be an announcement on the Preferred Route by the winter of 2017/18.  There will then be statutory Public Consultation on the preferred route in Spring 2018 and construction will start in 2020, with it opening to traffic by 2022. 

It’s important that everyone has their say, so if you have a view then I would urge to engage and I know that Arundel Town council plans to organise a public meeting with an objective Chairman from the communit some time in the Summer/Autumn

It’s all change at the Town council with Cllr Angela Standing becoming the new Mayor, thanks goes to James Stewart for his hard work and dedication over the last 2 year and i wish Angela the best of luck in her new role.

Arun District Council is set to launch a new scheme to make it easier for residents to dispose of broken or unwanted small electrical and electronic equipment.

The Council’s contractor, Biffa, will be offering the service as part of the new cleansing contract. The collections will be phased in across the district from 10 April 2017 and allow residents to recycle even more from home.

Electrical items “no larger than a standard-sized carrier bag” will be accepted. The collections will be weekly on the same day as the refuse collection.

Items need to be kept separate and not placed in with the recycling or rubbish collection.

The Council is asking residents to continue disposing of larger electrical items at their nearest Household Waste Recycling Centre.

Until next month
