Social distancing measures at the busy Household Waste Recycling Sites (HWRSs) have added pressure to the nearby roads leading to some disruptive queuing and delays for site visitors and road users.


The Cabinet Member for Environment has reviewed options for mitigating these impacts and has agreed measures to improve the management of vehicles accessing the HWRSs in a safe way for both staff and residents.  



The Cabinet Member for Environment has –


  1. approved the immediate introduction of a pilot HWRS booking system covering the Bognor, Littlehampton, Shoreham, Worthing, Crawley and Hop Oast (Horsham) sites as detailed in section 2 of the report.
  2. delegated authority to the Director of Environment and Public Protection, in consultation with the Cabinet Member for Environment and relevant local Members, to vary, expand or suspend the scheme during the six month pilot period in the event of operational issues; and
  3. agreed that proposals emerging from the pilot booking system’s six-month review will be considered by the Environment and Communities Scrutiny Committee prior to any further decision.
