Current Enforcement Cases pdf icon PDF 91 KB

Additional documents:

Minutes:

A report was submitted which informed Members of the current position with regard to enforcement cases.

The Cabinet Member for
Environment and Transport made reference to the two enforcement cases; CU10P1/202 0/224 - Land adjacent to Hoghton and Threadneedle Court, Sutton and UNTP2/2020 1/002 - 1A Islands Brow which involved waste being tipped on unregistered land and the establishment of an unauthorised tipping/skip hire business respectively.

The Committee was advised on the ‘Think twice’ fly tipping campaign which had been launched as a cross portfolio initiative to highlight the criminality of fly tipping and urging residents to think twice when arranging waste collection services.

The Cabinet Member, Regeneration and Planning proposed that consideration should be given to the re-establishment of the Enforcement Forum to help further support this area of work.

 

*           Resolved that;

(1)        the report be noted; and

(2)        the Planning Department, Environmental Service and Enforcement Service be thanked and commended for their work on both the Land adjacent to Hoghton and Threadneedle Court and 1A Islands Brow and in their ongoing work in supporting the ‘Think Twice’ campaign.
