The Council have told us that they won’t be clearing the fly tipping and rubbish from the rear of the Front Street shops.
It is located on private land.
Nevertheless the Council does have a responsibility to make sure that the City is safe and tidy.
This may mean using enforcement powers.
Maybe not a top priority at the present time but this is an issue that has rumbled on for several years. It is now in the hands of local Councillors to follow up.
We were also disappointed to see that fly tipping on the snicket entrance to the Cornlands Park – reported before Christmas – has still not been removed.
This despite a message from the Council saying that the matter had been closed on 30th December.
Elsewhere we have reported fly tipping and litter on the snickets which link The Reeves, Tithe Close and Tedder Road
Given the pressures on Council services at present, we would ask everyone to ensure that no litter is dropped and that all waste is kept in a secure location
