Longdowns recycling depot office and parking plans

First published in Cornwall

Nick Ferris Skip Hire has submitted a planning application to Cornwall Council for a new office and car parking at a waste and recycling depot at Herniss Farm, Longdowns, near Penryn.

The design statement said: “The new premises do not have office facilities which are required for the new owners. The office should be located by the existing weighbridge. There is no change of use of the site.”

Cornwall Council kept that quiet about new ownership. So Cornwall Council charge for bulky waste removal and increase fly tipping problems, then have recycling sites they don't even own, Helston is run by Sita. Will Cornwall Council own anything soon, no toilets, etc, might as well do away with Cornwall Council and just have local councils that can do make their own decisions as well as planning decisions.

This isn't about longdowns recycling centre which incidentally is run by Sita on behalf of the council. This is a private skip hire companies premises between longdowns and rame.

It's still a waste and recycling depot, and my point is the council don't own things they should.

Why should the council own private facilities? Nick Ferris' site is effectively a scrap yard, where they operate private skip hire from.
Are you suggesting the council should take over the running of all the scrap yards around?
Should the council provide skip hire?
It is a waste and recycling centre purely because the private company are licensed to dispose of the waste themselves at their depot.
