Environmental Crime

Environmental Crime

We should all know that litter, graffiti, fly-tipping, fly-posting, excess trade waste and additional household side waste makes our district look dirty and un-kept. Are you aware these activities constitute an environmental crime and these crimes and anti social behaviour will not be tolerated by the Council?

This Council has powers to prosecute residents and businesses who commit environmental crimes. This can include warnings, fines and prosecutions. The Council's Environmental Improvement team are tackling these problems to improve our district and ensure it is kept clean and tidy. We will ensure environmental crimes will be addressed and the offenders of those crimes will be penalised.
