Bassetlaw District Council has served notice on the owners of
land to the rear of the Trent Port Public house in Saundby that has
seen continued fly tipping and the burning of waste.
The site is situated on the Bassetlaw border with West Lindsay
and has led to attendance by emergency service teams from both
Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire.
The Council has issued the landowners with a Notice under
section 215 of the Town and Country Planning Act 1990 requiring
them to take specified steps to clear the fly tipping and secure
the site to prevent vehicles freely accessing the land in the
Should the landowner refuse to comply with the terms of the
notice, the Council has the power to undertake the clean-up works
itself and to recover the costs from the landowner.
Mark Ladyman, Director of Community Services at Bassetlaw
District Council said:
“Landowners have a legal obligation to keep their land clear of
refuse and litter and are given the opportunity to voluntarily take
the appropriate steps to address these issues.
However, if no action is forthcoming Bassetlaw District Council
has a number of statutory powers that will be used to target
illegal fly tipping including the use of Section 215 notices.
I would also appeal to the public to help by reporting details
of any vehicles they see tipping, including the date and
registration numbers to our Environmental Health Team on 01909 533
