New analysis from the cross-party East of England Local Government Association (EELGA) shows that the East region has missed out on key Government funding.
EELGA represents all 50 local authorities across the East and they wrote to HM Treasury prior to the Chancellor's Autumn Budget, outlining five key priorities for the region and making the case for further investment into the region's diverse communities.
Domestic waste going into black bins in Ipswich has increased 10% in the last two years (now 601 kilos each year for each household). Food waste makes up 37% of the total but nearly all of it can be composted using a special "hot bin". These bins turn the waste into a highly fertile garden compost which reduces the amount of waste going to the incinerator at Great Blakenham. The 100 litre bins, which the manufacturer's state are fly and rodent proof, are smaller than a standard bin and are placed in the garden. The Suffolk Waste Partnership heavily subsidise the bins and full details are on the Recycle for Suffolk website - https://getcomposting.com/en-gb/hotbin-mini-100-litre-compost- bin-hotbinminisub

Climate change will have a huge impact on all our lives in the years ahead. If we are to stand any chance of limiting the impact, local Councils must have all powers necessary to act.
That's the call made by Liberal Democrat Council Leaders, including Chelmsford's Stephen Robinson, in a letter to the Prime Minister. The Lib Dems have called on the PM to allow local government to be mentioned in any declaration agreed at the international climate summit - COP 26 - in November.
Boris Johnson's failure to defend our children's education meant that his Government spent the same amount in one month on Eat Out To Help Out as in a whole year for our children's school catch-up.
Imagine a future where our children's education is a priority. Where schools raise their mental well-being and their maths grades. Where they can excel at English and find their talent for music or sport. Where they grow into happy, healthy, adults.
