PLANS are being made to help make the household waste site on the South Lowestoft Industrial Estate even more user-friendly.

The CCTV cameras at the site in Haddenham Road are currently used by Suffolk County Council managers to monitor its efficiency and useage.

PLANS are being made to help make the household waste site on the South Lowestoft Industrial Estate even more user-friendly.

The CCTV cameras at the site in Haddenham Road are currently used by Suffolk County Council managers to monitor its efficiency and useage.

But it is hoped that the pictures can be placed on the county council website so that people can judge how busy the site is at any particular time and avoid long queues.

The site is the most modern in the county following a £600,000 project to improve facilities.

Last weekend, however, one Lowestoft resident was upset to find there were no signs warning people that cameras were in operation at the site.

A spokesman for the county council apologised and said the warning signs had been stolen from the security fence surrounding the site.

“We are aware we have a legal obligation to inform the public of the CCTV cameras and new signs have been put in place,” he said.
