Community Park Update

With today's announcement by the Prime Minister Langham's Community Park will reopen on Saturday July 4th

Update on Household Waste Recycling Centres.  

 

Abstraction of water from Langham Brook

The brook running through Langham is owned by each riparian property and we thank each of you for fulfilling your responsibiites with regard to the maintenance of the bank and water course.

The recent warm, dry spell has left the water level very low and we felt it was important to remind riparian owners that, whilst the abstraction of water up 20cubic metres per day or less does not require a licence from the Environment Agency, amounts in excess of this may do so and should be referred to them.

A reminder of riparian duties:

  • Pass on the flow of water without obstruction, pollution or diversion affecting the rights of others.
  • Maintain the bed and banks of the watercourse and to clear any debris, whether natural or artificial, to keep any culverts, rubbish screens, weirs and mill gates clear of debris.
  • Be responsible for protection of land from flooding and cause no obstructions, temporary or permanent, preventing the free passage of fish.
  • Accept flood flows even if caused by inadequate capacity downstream, but there is no duty to improve the drainage capacity of a watercourse.

Bulky waste collection service.

RCC will resume its bulky waste collection service from Monday 4 May.

The bulky waste service offers to collect and remove large household items such as furniture and white goods.

The cost for removal is £32 for up to four items. All bulky waste items must be left outside of properties, where they can be easily collected and removed.

Bulky waste operatives cannot currently enter people’s homes to remove items, meaning assisted collections are unavailable.

Bulky waste collections can be booked by calling RCC’s customer services team on: 01572 722 577. A limited number of collection slots are available each day.

Household Waste and Recycling Centres will remain closed for the time being
