A meeting for residents in Calverton has been organised after plans were submitted for a new recycling centre in the village.

Plans were put forward in December to convert a lorry dismantling site into a materials recycling centre on land off Hollinwood Lane.

The proposals include the erection of a canopy extension to the existing office and workshop building and relocation of a weighbridge.

There would also be configuration of car parking area with disabled spaces and electric vehicle charging points. Use of existing yard area and workshop and storage building as part of the material recycling operations.

The centre would operate 24-hours a day, seven days a week, including bank holidays.

A meeting has now been organised to discuss the plans, which will also be on show, at Calverton Village Hall on Park Road this Sunday (23) between 10am and 12pm.

Meeting organisers estimate that 19 20-tonne waste lorries would be accessing the site from Hollinwood Lane per day.

A spokesman said: “This is your opportunity speak out if you are against this change of use or recommend alternate access or site locations.”
