Green Waste: the war continues
In one sense I lost a battle in court today (having 13K costs awarded against me). However, possibly over 500 dumps of green waste have been cleared up as a result of the legal action although not all of the ones I highlighted were removed. Some long standing ones like in Nooklands Croft have now mainly gone (but not all).
I am likely to appeal the case. However, the clear message of the case is simply to do lots more applications for litter abatement orders, but avoid taking them to final hearing. I will, of course, consult with my constituents, but the early response is that they would like me to continue to fight the council on this issue.
