The Council has now started collection of textiles, small electrical items and batteries. Residents should place their unwanted textiles and small electrical items in a plastic carrier bag and leave them next to their refuse or recycling bin on collection day. Batteries should be placed in a clear sandwich bag and left on top of their bin (Please note that refuse crews will not be able to take any electrical items too large to fit into a carrier bag).
A focused consultation is now open on the emerging Guildford Local Plan prior to its submission to the Secretary of State. The consultation runs until midday on Monday 24th July 2017. For more information, including details of how to respond to the consultation, please click here.
I’m pleased to report that my colleague Graham Ellwood had been elected for a third term to represent Burpham and Merrow (Known as the Guildford East Division) on Surrey County Council at the local elections that took place on 4th May 2017. I look forward to continuing to work with him on Burpham issues in the years ahead.
