MEQ: Southgate Chase Allotments [SEC=OFFICIAL]

Classification: OFFICIAL

Dear Cllr Ioannou,

Thank you for your email.

The Waste Enforcement Team informs me that Waste Enforcement Officer Francesca Skipp will carry out an inspection of this location in due course, and monitoring will be carried out thereafter. Any waste found will be inspected for evidence and referred on for removal.

Formal enforcement action will be taken where sufficient evidence allows.

On previous inspections, Francesca has found sacks of household waste deposited along the fence line of the playing fields and the allotments, however no evidence was found so the individuals responsible could not be traced. On occasion, bulk and household items have also been found deposited along the path. These items were always referred for clearance.

Francesca will assess the location for littering/fly-tipping signage and install some along the path.

Any future witnessed fly-tipping incidents can be reported online and if substantial information can be provided in the form of a witness statement, this can be investigated and the appropriate action taken.

The Street Cleansing Team informs me that The litter bin in question has been removed.

This footpath is visited on a scheduled basis every Monday & Thursday and all fly tips and litter will be removed each time.

I hope the above addresses the enquiry raised.

Kind regards,
