Curse of fly-tipping

Fly-tipping has become more of a curse on our communities since the coronavirus lockdown, imposing an additional burden on our overstretched councils. It is a blight on our neighbourhood and country lanes.

Fortunately, EHDC have responded very quickly to a report of fly-tipping on London Road Clanfield made on Sunday. The report was recorded with and by Monday 20th April it had been cleared. Well done to our local council!

Now another fly-tipping incident, involving building materials and a lot of paint containers, has been photographed on a path in the Blendworth area and forwarded to EHDC. You too can report similar incidents directly via “MyEHDC”

Apart from despoiling our countryside, there is a cost to fly-tipping. If it takes place on private land, then farmers or landowners have to pay to remove it. When it is dumped on public land, such as footpaths and roads, then we will have to pick up the bill in our council taxes.

Please report any fly-tipping you find – there may be evidence amongst the rubbish that identifies the people who are involved. We need them to pay.
