Council Rejects Unpopular Flats Planned for Mickleover

Residents in Mickleover have caused the plans to build 20 flats and four new shops to be rejected. 11 people had officially complained to the council regarding the build and, he said “We have refused it because it was an over-intensive, over-dominant form of development. This was in terms of height and the impact it would have caused to nearby properties. It would also have detracted from the appearance of the nearby conservation area.” The full story can be found here and is potentially encouraging as these are some of the points we raised in our report about the Aida/Bliss Development.

More Wheely Bins for Chester Green

As can be seen in the Evening Telegraph article here, Chester Green is soon to be getting more wheely bins. To quote from here, “Where it operates, people have a brown bin for garden rubbish, black bin for general household waste and either blue boxes or bins for plastic, glass and tins. There is also a pink bag for textiles and blue bag for recyling newspapers.” Apparantly it is to start in July.
