Waste collections in Chichester delayed because of snow

SEVERE weather conditions have disrupted refuse collections by Chichester District Council.

Residents are being asked to leave their bins out, so their refuse can be collected at the first available opportunity.

The council apologised for any inconvenience this may cause.

It is also closing its offices at the earlier time of 3.30pm today (January 18), to make sure its staff get home safely.

If residents need to contact the council in an emergency they should call 01243 785339.

The council’s Chichester Careline service continues to operate 24-hours-a-day and will be taking the council’s emergency calls.

Currently, Westgate Leisure Chichester and Bourne are open as normal, but some of their classes have been cancelled.

The situation will be reviewed throughout the day.

If you need to contact the leisure centres, you can call 01243 785651 for Chichester, and 01243 376101 for Bourne.

The Novium is also operating as normal.
