Wiltshire Council report recommends Everleigh Recycling Centre is closed

Having seen a tweet with regard to Everleigh Tip being closed

“Plans to save money by closing Pewsey’s Everleigh tip are put on hold by ‘s cabinet – but the hole in the waste budget remains.” from

I’ve just waded through 154 pages of the Public Reports Pack (link to the PDF document on the Wiltshire Council Website here), you can find this proposal “hidden away” on Pages 44 & 49 at the Wiltshire Council Cabinet Meeting held 15th September 2015.

According to the Gazette and Herald website article, several councillors successfully requested it be pulled from the agenda so further discussions can take place before a final decision is made, in the hopes the recycling centre does not close

You can read the Gazette and Herald article here and the latest update from Everleigh Parish Council is :

“”After representation from the Pewsey and Tidworth Area Boards, Wilts Council proposals to close the Everleigh Recycle Centre have been put on hold until proper consultation has taken place. Everleigh Parish Council fully supports the retention of the Everleigh Recycle Centre and will be working with the Tidworth Area Board to achieve that effect.”
