will this therefore have other repercussions since the new Cenotaph works requires the opeing of the wall and movement of the disabled spots in front?

Its not quite a no , but an officer's assessment of the costs ( which Waste Services wont pay for ), and other factors including overall loss of 2 car parking spaces.

Perhaps if we could also have some of the Multi use waste bins around town , like in Leeds , that have holes for paper / plastic bottles / cans on one side and general waste on the other that might increase local recycling.

I agree it isn't a 'no' but:

Consider the time for the consultation

Consider that Cllr Whipp is responsible Officer for this department & would have to move funds from elsewhere

the decision would have to be made at a West Craven Area Committee, after all those hoops, and then agreed by the Council exec

The thought that keeps popping into my head is that I doubt if the blokes named on the memorial would see the bins being any problem as long as they were properly screened.
A secondary consideration, will the bins be as well used if they are in the Rainhall Road car park?

My greatest concern is that if the bins are put in this much less used car park that the likelihood of 'fire starting' will escalate, and if it does go to consultation the neighbours, police and fire brigade might object

The proposed relocation site at Rainhall Road is directly opposite the police station and as such is a much underused car park albeit only about 80 mtrs from the Co-op car park. The argument that moving the bins will remove 4 car parking spaces from the Rainhall site is irrelevant as all spaces are never filled anyway. I think there is CCTV that overlooks the site as well. Is there an issue already with "fire starting"? I have never picked up on any reports if that is the case.
