The Fly-Tipping Issues

I am very grateful to Cllr Dee Laws for getting on the case very rapidly re fly-tipping West Delph area. As stated in my previous posts YOUR elected Councillors should be YOUR first place to contact, I am a member of the Public – Yes with knowledge and experience, but I do not have the same resources as YOUR Councillors – that’s why they are elected to represent you.
I can lobby and help where I can and have my own friends and resources to drawn upon.
Back to the West Delph Fly-Tipping Issue. – the following was sent (with permission) from Cllr Laws yesterday and explains to all how to report this type of issue.

As Ward Councillors we have all direct dial numbers and e-mail address for our local authorities and organisations.
I have contacted the Fenland District Council, Environment Agency North Level IDB and RSPB, all are involved with this dreadful fly tipping incident.
The first contact for any dumping of waste material in our watercourses must be reported to the Environmental Incident hotline 0800 807 060
Details posted on Whittlesey Town Council follow the link from ‘about your council’ and open Flood Warden Group tab.
Fenland District Council Street Scene Officer and automatically Rapid Response Team despatched.
North Level Internal Drainage Board alerted and our local Environment Agency office.
I will post a full report later.”

Last Nights update;

“I can confirm Fenland District Council Rapid Response Team attended on Monday 23rd May and took away what they could from Morton’s Leam bank, 20 X bags of organic waste.
North Level Internal Drainage clearing the remaining bags (approximately ten) from in and around the watercourse tomorrow – Thursday 26th May.
I am waiting for an update/report from the Environment Agency but understand they have been experiencing problems having gone live this week with a new telephone system and links.
It’s been a team effort as all of the authorities having been working together.”
