Council ‘swots’ Northleach fly-tipper with £400 fine

A flytipper who dumped a pile of rubbish in Northleach has been fined £400.

Cotswold District Council issued the fixed penalty notice to an individual following an investigation of a fly-tip found last week.

Cllr Andrew Doherty, cabinet member for recycling, waste and environment, said: “Fly-tipping is a national problem and has a significant impact on communities and our environment.

“As a council, it is an issue that we take very seriously, and we will tackle offenders wherever, and whenever, we can.

“Any incident of fly-tipping is a criminal offence, and this council will use its powers of enforcement in all cases where we are able to, either through the issue of a fixed penalty notice or through a prosecution.

“Education is also important and we will continue our work to make sure that residents and businesses understand their responsibilities and how to properly dispose of their waste.

“If you have evidence of a fly-tip or concerns about the illegal dumping of waste in your community, please report on our website:”
