As residents will be aware, following Storm Babet and the continuing heavy rain since, the Riverside Recycling Centre has been closed due to flooding.
We asked the council for an update and received this on Friday from the Assistant Waste Services Manager :
"Despite ongoing efforts to pump hundreds of thousands of litres of flood water out of the site by both ground pumps and gully tankers, the Yellow weather warning and torrential rain has set us back a number of days with the water levels having increased again overnight.
Unfortunately we are not in a position to be able to give any indication of a likely re-opening date at this stage as the site must be fully cleared of standing water and a clean-up operation completed, and we are actively monitoring the situation on a daily basis.
Employee and public safety is our paramount focus, and we need to ensure the site is fully safe to re-open.
We will continue to provide website updates to the public as matters progress."

Residents recently contacted us about the deteriorating state of the road surface in Shaftesbury Park - see photos.
We therefore took up this matter with the council's Roads Maintenance Partnership requesting improvements - ideally resurfacing should be considered in a future roads capital programme.

As residents will recall, we have long campaigned to see improvements of the road surface in Rockfield Crescent, which has long been in a very poor state.
We were pleased when the roads maintenance partnership gave a commitment to resurface the road this financial year.
Michael is pictured during the works which have resulted in a much better road surface.
