Gatwick Airport Master Plan Consultation

Please see the Gatwick page for details of this consultation - deadline 10th January - how to respond and the High Weald Councils Aviation Action Group response.  If implemented, the changes proposed under the Master Plan will have an immense impact on Leigh and the surrounding area. It is vital that you respond. 

Christmas Tree Recycling

Trees with a trunk of up to 90mm (3.5”) in diameter will be collected by Sevenoaks District Council’s fortnightly Garden Waste Collection service from Wednesday 2nd January until Friday 1st February 2019, which ensures all the trees are turned into environmentally friendly compost.  Residents need simply put their tree by the boundary of their property, where they normally place their refuse or recycling sacks, by 7am on the day the Council’s fortnightly Garden Waste Collection service takes place on their road. Trees should not be potted or on a stand, and must be free of decorations before being put out for recycling.

Residents unsure when the service is visiting their road can go to www.sevenoaks.gov.uk/collectiondays

Drainage and Flooding

We will update you when we have more information. If you would like to report any blocked drains or problem areas to the Parish Council for inclusion in the list of sites to be discussed with KCC, please contact the Clerk by email at Louise.leighclerk@hotmail.com.  Please ensure that you give full details of the problem including the exact location.

Potholes
