HIGH Heavens waste centre will remain open this weekend, despite plans to close it for repair work.

Road resurfacing work was planned for the household waste and recycling centre in Booker tomorrow and Sunday.

But due to the unpredictable weather forecast for this weekend, the works have been postponed.

The council had previously warned the date may change due to the weather.

As heavy rain is predicted this weekend, the road resurfacing cannot go ahead, as the surface would not set properly.

The centre is now due to close on the weekend of July 26 and 27, reopening as normal again on Monday July 28. The surfacing work is essential to complete the new access road which will make it easier for drivers to get in and out of High Heavens.

Lesley Clarke, cabinet member for planning and the environment at Buckinghamshire County Council, said: “We were all geared up for the High Heavens closure over this weekend, and had extensively publicised it in order that residents wouldn’t be inconvenienced.

"We did add the rider that weather or unforeseen circumstances might change this, and sadly this is what has happened. The contractor has had to call off the essential road surfacing work due to the predicted bad weather, which is understandable, so the site will remain open this weekend for those who wish to use it.”
