Fly-Tipping Enforcement Policy pdf icon PDF 679 KB

Report of the Director of Leisure and Environment

Minutes:

The Director of Leisure and Environment submitted a report setting out a draft Leisure and Environment Enforcement Policy together with a revised schedule on the Waste and Street Scene Enforcement Options, including Fly-Tipping, for consideration.  It was noted that the Leisure and Environment Enforcement Policy would be considered by Cabinet at a meeting in November 2018.

 

The Committee recognised the on-going initiatives to tackle fly-tipping such as Operation Eyeball, a multi-agency operation throughout North Yorkshire looking to tackle fly-tipping and developing the website making it more focussed and easier to use.  The Committee considered the content of the revised schedule on the Waste and Street Scene Enforcement Options and concluded that this did bring the Fly-Tipping enforcement options up-to-date and that this, in conjunction with the overarching Waste and Street Scheme Enforcement Options policy, would be fit for purpose.

 

THE DECISION:

 

That the revised the Waste and Street Scheme Enforcement Options be approved.
