UPDATE ON PYES ACRE CAR PARK
The resurfacing of the Pyes Acre Car Park has taken considerably longer than anticipated. The delay has occurred for several reasons.
Firstly, during the excavation of the original car park surface an unexpected complication occurred due to the incorrect installation by the previous contractors. This caused a delay and lead into the Christmas period. The completion was then pushed back by the rain. When there was a dry spell and the contractors returned the batteries from their vehicles had been stolen and our CCTV had been tampered with. Following the wettest February on record a base was laid. Different materials base and binder can be laid in a wet, colder climate but the surface coarse needs to be installed in drier weather to get a finer finish. This has been confirmed by Highways BFC.
The recent removal of some of the base layer was due to replace some areas that have sunk due to the weather conditions. The work is continuing and remains weather dependant. Contractors are currently back on site
The resurfacing of Pyes Acre Car Park is not being paid for by taxpayers’ money. It is being funded by money that the Council receive from developers under the CIL (Community Infrastructure Levy) arrangement.

Immediate closure of the Recycling Centres in Bracknell & Reading
Following Prime Minister’s announcement on strict restrictions on movement and non-essential gatherings, re3 has taken the decision to close the Recycling Centres in Bracknell and Reading. This decision has not been taken lightly, but we must now all play our part, stay home to save lives and protect the vulnerable, elderly and the NHS.
re3 will work with its Contractor to redeploy staff and maintain effective receipt of waste from collection services and operate as efficiently as possible.
We will review this decision after the initial three-week period, taking into account the Government advice at the time. During this time, we are asking residents to maximise the kerbside collections and hold-on to any inert waste they may have. We are grateful to all residents for their understanding.
