Fly Tipper Caught on CCTV Dumping Waste in War Memorial Recreation Ground
In September, our CCTV cameras captured clear images of a fly tipper dumping waste in the War Memorial Recreation Ground.
Working with Stroud District Council, the offender was successfully identified and issued with a Fixed Penalty Notice for £150, which was subsequently paid.
Councillor Alex Stennett, Chair of the Council Green Spaces Committee, said "fly tipping is an unnecessary and unpleasant activity in this modern age so I am reassured that we can work with Stroud District Council to bring offenders to task."
Councillor Doina Cornell, Stroud District Council Leader commented that "it's just not acceptable for people to dump rubbish in this way – they need to realise that there are proper ways to dispose of waste and that their actions could land them in trouble."
Councillor Simon Pickering, Stroud District Council's Environment Committee Chair commented that "this is great partnership work between town and district councils - together we can stamp out this unacceptable behaviour."
