To enter into agreement with ODS to build an approved bin store, in accordance with planning requirements, at the end of the Old School House Building for the storage of residential and commercial waste for Gloucester Green occupants.  Costs are to be covered from reserve budget and a contribution recovered from New River who are the long leaseholder.

Reasons for the decision:

There is currently no adequate waste storage provision in the area, which is causing significant environmental health and safety issues.

Alternative options considered:

Not to build the bin store.  This option was rejected due to mounting pressure from residents, environmental health and the waste operator ODS, all concerned about the inadequate provision for waste storage.
