Fly-tipping removal funding scheme to support landowners

Posted: Mon, 30 Jan 2023 12:52 by Samantha Hosking

Landowners across West Northants can apply for funding to clear and prevent fly-tipping on their land under a scheme delivered by the Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner.

When fly-tipping takes place on public land, the taxpayer pays for the removal and disposal of the waste. However, if a fly-tip occurs on private land, the landowner pays for the clean up and removal. More »

The scheme was initially launched as a pilot last year by Stephen Mold, the Police, Fire, and Crime Commissioner for Northamptonshire (PFCC), and was extended in October 2022 for a further 12 months.

Private landowners are able to apply for a grant of up to £1,500 towards the cost of having the fly-tipped waste cleared away and to support them in establishing prevention measures which will make the land less vulnerable to fly-tippers in the future. Funding is only available for private landowners.

Cllr David Smith, WNC's Cabinet Member for regulatory services, community safety and engagement, said: "West Northamptonshire is a beautiful district and it is very disappointing that some individuals decide to fly-tip their waste rather than dispose of it in a responsible and legal manner, quite rightly these individuals risk heavy fines and possible imprisonment when caught and prosecuted.

"I would encourage farmers and landowners on the frontline of this important issue to find out more about the scheme and how it can support them."

West Northamptonshire Council is committed to tackling fly-tipping and deterring people from blighting communities. The Council's Cleaner Communities campaign aims to provide guidance on how people can ensure they only use licensed waste removal companies, highlight when people have been prosecuted for fly-tipping, and gather intelligence on dumped waste to lead to a prosecution.

Northamptonshire Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner, Stephen Mold said: "Fly-tipping is a crime and is a blight on our streets. The anti-social behaviour of a minority can ruin our communities for everyone else.

"Private landowners can face significant costs to clear their land of illegally dumped waste, but they can apply for a grant to help offset some of the expense in removal of the waste, or to help cover the cost of setting up deterrents."
