Fly-tip­per hit with fine

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - NEWS -

A fly-tip­per who dumped house­hold waste in a ditch in Spald­ing has been hit with a heavy fine.

David Tarr tipped a num­ber of items from a rel­a­tive’s re­cent house move into a ditch in South Drove, Spald­ing Com­mon, on May 24.

Tarr, of Bel­grave Road, Spald­ing, ap­peared at Bos­ton Mag­is­trates’ Court on July 31 and pleaded guilty to the of­fence. He was fined £300 and also or­dered to pay com­pen­sa­tion of £150, in­ves­ti­ga­tion costs of £133 and le­gal costs of £355.

Cllr Roger Gambba-Jones, South Hol­land District Coun­cil’s port­fo­lio holder for waste man­age­ment, said: “We will visit and ex­am­ine where pos­si­ble all re­ported fly tips in an at­tempt to find ev­i­dence to pros­e­cute of­fend­ers.

“This case goes to show that if you run the risk of fly­tip­ping you can be hit heav­ily in the pocket.

“We hope that this case also acts as a de­ter­rent to any­one think­ing of fly-tip­ping in the district.”

Fly-tip­ping can be re­ported to South Hol­land District Coun­cil by call­ing 01775 761161 or on­line at www.shol­land.
