With that in mind, I raised my concerns at a Town Hall meeting, and questioned why 56% of reported fly-tipping cases were not investigated in our city?
Tory Councillor Gavin Elsey (who received £14,330 on top of his basic pay last year) responded stating that “…cases where there was not any significant evidence that would allow the perpetrators to be identified would not be investigated, as there was virtually no possibility of success.”
In my opinion, I think we need to see fines tripled and more dedicated enforcement teams introduced, that actually operate throughout the city and investigate more incidents!
The Conservatives at the Town Hall have had 17 years to address this!
Instead, they’ve failed, with unpopular schemes, costly exercises and the removal of community skips!
As always, if you have a suggestion or view please post a comment below!
