While not in the ward/division I represent, had the Bagshot Community Recycling Centre closed, the impact would have affected us all especially, to my mind, in terms of the traffic that would grind the already heavily congested Frimley Road to a halt.
Residents responded to the consultation in unprecedented numbers, over 13000 in fact. I am pleased that the views of residents were listened too and all CRC's across Surrey will remain open.
However, the existing service will have to reduce in order that the council can still meet its targeted savings. I will of course let everyone know exactly what reductions will be made once the details are finalised.
