Pickles New Guidance on ‘Bin Blight’
A consultation on housing standards to be published next week will say: ‘The Government places a high degree of importance in ensuring that suitable provision is made for waste storage in new homes, particularly to avoid bins dominating street frontages or contributing to increased levels of anti-social nuisance such as odour or litter.
‘This is sometimes referred to as bin blight, and the Government intends to bring this to an end.’
Nothing new existing government endorsed Manual for Streets Paragraph 6.8.13 says the same. But why doesn’t it say ‘Waste and Recycling storage’ spaces – after all if its being recycled it isnt waste. Perhaps Pickles only means sufficient storage space for Chicken Tikka Massala.
