A pilot scheme has been set up by Northamptonshire Police, Fire and
Crime Commissioner Stephen Mold to support farmers and landowners to
remove fly-tipping from their land free of charge and to put in place
measures to prevent it from happening again.
The pilot scheme is being run with East Northamptonshire and Daventry
And the leaseholder of fields by the A605 near Lilford has been the
first to be helped by the scheme, having around three tonnes of green
waste and vehicle parts (pictured) cleared from their land and physical
prevention measures to keep fly tippers out are being installed.
Local councils do not remove fly-tipped waste on private land, that is
the responsibility of the landowner, however councils do investigate
reports of fly tipping.
Under the scheme, farmers and private landowners in East
Northamptonshire and Daventry can report fly-tipping on their land and
the authority will arrange for the fly tip to be cleared – with the cost
being met by the Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner.
The council will then suggest measures that would help the landowner to
prevent further tipping on their land, for which the Commissioner's
Office will supply a grant.
