Give your feedback on plans for new Norwich South recycling centre
An important milestone in the project to build a new larger modern recycling centre to the south of Norwich, to replace the current site at Ketteringham, has been reached as the planning application is now open for comment.
The new Norwich South recycling centre would complement the planned new Norwich North recycling centre, which already has planning approval and will replace the current Mile Cross recycling centre in 2021.
Should the Norwich South plans get the go-ahead, a recycling centre would be built on an underused part of the Harford Park and Ride site using available spare space.
Councillor Andy Grant, Norfolk County Council Cabinet Member for Environment & Waste, said: “I’m very grateful to everyone who took the time to let us know their thoughts on our plans earlier this year as this helped us to shape the scheme that we’re now seeking planning permission for. The £1.9m site is a significant and vital investment in making sure that we are providing a service fit for the future and that can meet the needs of a growing population.”
The design incorporates plenty of parking for cars, bicycles and vehicles with trailers, and a one-way traffic system to smooth traffic flow and reduce queues. Both the Norwich North and Norwich South sites are at locations with good transport links to make them accessible to as many people as possible in the growing Norwich area.
The planning application is open for feedback until 13 August 2020. Find out more information and respond to the planning application (reference number: FUL/2020/0040).
