An­gryres­i­dentscon­tact PTover fly-tip­ping sites

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Behind The Headlines -

“Per­haps the head­line should be wel­come to dirty Peter­bor­ough. It’s ab­so­lutely filthy.” That is the view of Neville Tustin, owner of the Penny Lane sec­ond-hand shop in Fitzwilliam Street. Mr Tustin said it took sev­eral calls for rub­bish next to a closed down restau­rant in Broad­way to be re­moved. He was one of three peo­ple to con­tact the Peter­bor­ough Tele­graph in the past week over fly-tip­ping. John Denny (69) of Lin­coln Road said white vans were dump­ing rub­bish at Brassey Close, off Lin­coln Road, in the early hours of the morn­ing. “No-one seems to want to do any­thing,” he said. “Amey said it won’t come be­cause it’s pri­vate prop- erty.” An­other res­i­dent, who wished to re­main anony­mous, said he had moved into New­bor­ough a year ago and was shocked by the fly-tip­ping at Nor­wood Lane, a well-known grot spot. Adrian Chap­man, coun­cil ser­vice direc­tor for adult ser­vices and com­mu­ni­ties, said: “Where waste has been fly-tipped on pri­vate land, we will no­tify the land owner so that they can ar­range for it to be cleared. “Nor­wood Lane has been a fly-tip­ping hotspot for a num­ber of years. We are tak­ing ac­tion and we’ll soon be in­stalling a gate that only res­i­dents of Nor­wood Lane will have ac­cess to.”
