Minutes:

Members of the public were invited to put questions to the Chair of the Area Committee on any matters within the powers and duties of the Area Committee, subject to the exclusions set out in the Code of Practice.

 

One public question was submitted as follows: -

 

·         Relating to flytipping in the Mill Lane and Hollow Vale Drive area.

 

In response, the following draft response was provided to the Committee: -

 

“We are aware that there has been a significant increase in the instances of fly tipping since lockdown. Whilst partly down to the closure of the tips for a period we believe that there may be some local businesses and residents that have picked up on a fly tipping “hot spot” and are now using it to dispose of extra bags of household waste. Reddish Vale has suffered considerably during this period and we have no doubt that waste is being fly tipped there by both criminals and “opportunist” local businesses and residents.

 

Reddish Vale is a large area and to effectively cover the site with CCTV would require many cameras and a lot of money. We are however, looking to identify the most appropriate locations for CCTV cameras should funding be secured and are monitoring the areas around the vale on a regular basis. We do possess covert CCTV equipment and will consider deploying this if there is a particular hotspot identified. We will therefore, be introducing signage over the next few weeks at a number of locations in Reddish Vale advising the fly tippers of the presence of CCTV and warning and that they may be prosecuted.

 

There is no easy solution to this issue and even the presence of CCTV is unlikely to deter the most determined criminals. I can assure you that we do take this issue extremely seriously and will continue to investigate instances of fly tipping and take legal action against offenders as required.”

 

It was commented that the references to local residents and businesses in the response be deleted.

 

RESOLVED – That the draft response be amended as requested and provided to the questioner.
