Green light for Baston tip plans

PLANS for a new tip have been approved.

Lincolnshire County Council granted PMK Recycling permission to build a household waste recycling centre in Baston Outgang Road at a meeting on Tuesday.

Councillors approved the plans on the condition that the developer provides new road signage, a routing agreement for lorries, a speed reduction sign that activates according to vehicle’s speed and £40,000 towards future highway maintenance of the road.

The new tip will be built on the site of the firm’s existing waste sorting facility and will be open from 8am to 6pm Monday to Friday and 8am to 4pm Saturdays and Sundays.

It would be able to take up to 28 cars queuing within the site to the off-loading lane and would incorporate a bypass lane to let traffic flow freely.

The tip would employ six people and would be built right next to the sorting facility. Waste would be transferred directly from the tip to the sorting centre.
