Possible Closure of Alton Recycling Centre

Parish Council

Due to cuts in spending HCC are considering closing several recycling centres in Hampshire. One of the centres at risk is Alton. Initially from the 1st January 2017 all recycling centres will be opening at 11am and be closed on Thursdays.

Using glossy light reflecting evergreens to brighten winter shrubberies and dark corners. Sinking a path between shrubs to give an enclosed feeling and adding sudden peeps through to the light between those shrubs. Serpentine paths to draw the eye onwards and make you explore what is round the corner. ...
