Council fails to tackle flytipping in Streatham

Nicole Griffiths: championing cleaner streets
Only four people have been fined for fly-tipping in Streatham, since the council gained powers to issue fines, Green party campaigner Nicole Griffiths has discovered.

Nicole found that Lambeth has the worst record among south London boroughs for fining fly-tippers, with only 35 offenders fined in 16 months - compared to 36 in Merton, 41 in Bromley, 58 in Lewisham, 268 in Croydon, and 117 in just 8 months in Wandsworth. Southwark did not provide figures.

Nicole said: "Flytipping is a blight on our community and these figures show that Lambeth Council is not yet taking it seriously in Streatham. Greens will do all we can to keep our streets clean."

The Green Party has set up a shortcode to make it easier to report flytipping to Lambeth Council: http://bit.do/flytipping (This link is now correct - apologies, previous version didn't).

Lambeth's full response, ward by ward, can be seen here.
