Waste site decision handed over

A decision on the site of a Leicestershire waste collection depot has been handed to the county council.

Focsa Services UK Ltd, wanted to store vehicles and some waste at the compound on Welham Road, Great Bowden, but faced opposition from nearby residents.

Harborough District Council, which uses the firm for some services, was to consider the planning application.

Now officials said after obtaining legal advice they decided to hand the matter to the county council.

Those objecting to the new depot had insisted it was unsafe to have it so close to the busy A6.
