Decision details

Fly Tipping Strategy and Action Plan

Decision Maker: Cabinet

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: Yes

Is subject to call in?: No


Consideration was given to a report of the Cabinet Member for Environment and Facilities / Director of Neighbourhoods setting out an approach to develop a fly tipping strategy and action plan.


Alternatives considered

The council could choose not to adopt the strategy and continue to remove fly tipping as it does currently. It is unlikely this will result in any significant improvement in levels of fly tipping.



1.    That the fly tipping strategy is considered and adopted by the council.

2.    That a working group comprising of six members be organised to monitor progress and agree schemes to be trialled.

3.    That a fly tipping strategy is publicised in early 2022 for public consultation.


Reason for recommendation

To reduce the incidents of fly tipping and where possible undertake suitable enforcement action against the perpetrators.
