FLY TIPPING ON THE INCREASE IN OSCOTT
Fly tipped rubbish blocking a foot path off Booths Lane
Fly tipping as I predicted earlier this year is on the increase in the Oscott Ward. For example Booths Lane has bee extensively dumped on recently and I have a number of complaints from residents about there rear access ways being fly tipped on.
This is only to be expected although it is totally unacceptable, given the Councils decisions recently.
They have got rid of Environmental Wardens and reduced the number of free Home Bulky waste removals to 3 a year and so have helped cause the problem.
In regards to Booths lane I have asked for more patrols to take place and new warning signs reminding Fly Tippers they can be prosecuted to be put up and the old ones have gone past their sell by dates.
