Have your say

PLANS have been submitted for a household waste and recycling centre in Newton Stewart.

The unit, to be sited at the council’s Barnkirk Depot, would fulfil the long-awaited requirement for a household waste and recycling centre in the area - the closest currently being Whithorn, Leswalt or Castle Douglas.

The plans, if approved, would see a portacabin, 2.4 metre-high fence and relocation of staff car park and welfare facilities.

Scottish Water lodged no objections but suggested a survey be carried out to ensure no sufficient water demand will be met and there will be no loss to surrounding residents - namely the Glebe area.
