MEQ- Chase Road Cleanliness

Thank you for your enquiry raising a number of issues in and around Chase Road

Thank you for your report of fly tipping in the entrance to Southgate Allotments opposite Hillside Grove

This road and the surrounding area is visited daily by a fly tip collection team and any waste found on the public highway will be removed.

Evidence found will also be photographed and passed to the Waste Enforcement Unit for the appropriate action to be taken

Our teams will also react to any reported flytip on the public highway the same day if possible, but within 24hrs if not.

May I also take the opportunity to advise that flytips should in future be reported using the online reporting system as they are service requests not MEQ’s, this will then ensure it is removed immediately (MEQ’s take a much longer process to be allocated to the correct officer) and they will also be logged on the system and formally recorded as a flytip

The issue relating to weeds in the garage area at the junction of Chase Road and Hillside Grove has been passed to our Waste Enforcement Team.

Those weeds on the public highway have been removed by our team, but the garage area is private so we would not clear it.

The responsibility for this would lay with the landowner or the land users, the Waste Enforcement Unit will make contact and if necessary issue notices and/or fixed penalty notices if no action is taken

The issue regarding the hole in the road surface has, as requested been passed to the Council’s Highway section for them to action
