Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
Could you please explain your situation a little more?
I am trying to find out if there is any right to rubbish collection for my flats which have been created out of change of use. Early on in another planning permission attempt we proved a prescriptive right of way through a gate at the rear and that the previous occupant had his rubbish removed through this gate, which backs straight onto a council-owned car parking space. Now the council is say that rubbish has to be carried by owners 40m away to another point as they cannot remove the rubbish the same way due to the car parking space behind. I obviously have already tried to buy this space from the council for access without success. Not sure what rights I have now to try and get around this problem
Hi Alex, I sent more details some time ago. Did you see that? best regards.
Blue bin bags must be left out by 6.30am on your collection day:
The bin store should be no more than 10 metres from the highway and a dropped kerb in place. There should be 1 x 360 litre wheeled bin between 3 properties which is provided by the developer. We don't provide rubbish sacks where there are bins in place. Recycling boxes should also be stored in the bin store.
What I could find that was relevant is below. We only have a garden as they would not allow parking or a dropped kerb. Prior to being converted to flats it was offices and before that a house, always with collecting through the rear gate.
You need to report this to your Councillor. They
The Councillor should deal with this on your behalf as they are elected by you.
If that does not resolve the matter then you can write to the Chief Officer of the Council.That department will investigate the matter and report back to you.
If that does not resolve it the next step is to complain to the Local Government Ombudsman. They are free, independent and can investigate your complaint at: www.lgo.org.uk
The final step would be to issue High Court proceedings for a Judicial Review. This is where a High Court Judge considers the decision of the Council to see if it is reasonable and legal. The Court can agree with the decision or remit it back to the Council.
So there are 4 steps:
2) Chief Officer
4) High Court
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
that's brilliant Alex. Many thanks. We will start that process. best regards
Happy to help Adele
