Owner of land­scap­ing firm fined for dam­age

Harefield Gazette - - NEWS -

THE owner of a land­scap­ing com­pany who piled up 25 pal­lets of paving stones, block­ing the pave­ment, has been fined.

Mark Richards, of Richards Land­scapes, was found guilty of ob­struct­ing the pave­ment and grass verge in Church Road, Cowley, when he ap­peared at Uxbridge Mag­is­trates’ Court on April 28.

The court heard how, in Novem­ber 2014, his com­pany was em­ployed to lay a drive­way for a res­i­dent of Church Road, Cowley, and chose to store build­ing ma­te­ri­als out­side the prop­erty.

Hilling­don Coun­cil’s anti-so­cial be­hav­iour in­ves­ti­ga­tions team served a legal no­tice on the com­pany to re­move the ma­te­ri­als, but af­ter they were gone, dam­age to the pave­ment and grass verge was ob­served.

Mr Richards was or­dered to pay £1,373.70, which in­cluded a fine, com­pen­sa­tion for the dam­age caused and the coun­cil’s legal costs.
