Winchester civic chiefs consider more litter bins
4:43pm Thursday 12th September 2013 in News
WINCHESTER city centre needs more litter bins, the town forum heard last night.
The review was sparked by lobbying in June by David Jones, chairman the volunteer Winchester Litter Pickers who have suggested new bins at 49 sites.
City councillors on the forum, which represents the six Winchester city wards, agreed in principle to support extra bins subject to final budget decisions.
The review comes as the city council is replacing dog waste bins with new bigger dual use ones.
The litter pickers have suggested additional bins at: * St Barnabas ward - Stoney Lane, Hampton Lane, Town/Harestock Boundary Path; * St Bartholomew ward - Staple gardens/Tower Street, Andover Road (east side), Hyde Street/Worthy Road, Eastgate; * St John and All Saints ward - various sites in Winnall, Highcliffe and Chesil/Bar End; * St Luke ward - various sites in Stanmore; * St Michael ward - College Street/College Walk/The Weirs junction, east-west section of The Square, St James Lane to Airlie Corner path; * St Paul ward - Station Hill, Fordington Road, Western School, Chilbolton Avenue.
Some 18 of the proposals the council says further investigation is needed.
