Once again on Mr Edwards patch.
Might just pop it all in the trolley and wheel it down to him!

I am sticking my head above the parapet and say that to my mind Megiland is a very good investigative poster and doesn't need any advice as to what / where he should be researching / looking .

The environmental health is involved,!!!

Can't see how I can take direct action using the advice you suggest, other than a private action through the courts. Am I right?

Who knows? Hopefully Rotherwas but sherborne is closer!!

 

If you can't pin some fly tipped rubbish on a person then eventually The Council will have to cart it away ..... Just what happens after several weeks of moaning ....

The council doesn't remove rubbish in these areas as the housing belongs to Herefordshire Housing, you can now add Pixley Walk to these area. I asked HH when the redevelopment started round the Oval if the green waste bins from the flats could be put into these areas, they didn't take any notice in fact the developers are crushing them as they pull each block of flats down, I have seen them doing it on a daily basis as I live close to the development.

Perhaps not the best place to put this but it will do.  Does this mean that some of those grossly overpaid coffee swilling suits are about to start feeling a bit twitchy but I suppose they could always come back as consultants or temps

The ‘atomised’ council is here to stay ... http://www.theguardian.com/society/2015/dec/02/atomised-council-stripped-basics-services-future-local-government â€¦ Who wants to be implicated in this process, or complicit in it? @VftL_UK

Bearing in mind that the flytipping on the pathway has now been there for 4 months (See post 90 - 3rd August 2015), it is obvious that Herefordshire Housing has no inspection policy regarding the cleanliness of their estates or any plan to maintain and clean up these areas in the future. People are beginning to think this mess is a permanent art installation.

Having spoke to the HHL estates manager for Newton Farm on another matter yesterday (Fri)  he mentioned the fly tipping and I asked when is it going to be cleared as it had been there for months. He said the fly tipping behind the electric station on the fields is Herefordshire  council area, which he assured me he has reported to them. I did tell him again about Sherborne close, Pixley walk and the garages in Brampton road, and that it has been there quite some time, I told him if he wanted further clarification to come on here and see the pictures and comments!.

Not much action for two years since the last post above - gave up complaining. Any way the cavalry are on their way. Lets hope it shames the council and Balfour Beatty. BB's campaign for Living Places is a joke in Hereford.

 

We enhance and maintain the structures that bring people together, create communities and underpin everyday life.

We create safe, flexible and dynamic public spaces. We are right at the heart of a vital place-shaping agenda that brings together local authorities, local communities, central government and the private sector. Our projects are geared towards community need, economic growth and sustainability.

Balfour Beatty Living Places works in partnership with customers to consult, finance, design, build and manage essential infrastructure. Our teams create and maintain public places that combine local community and business needs. We specialise in highways maintenance, street lighting and public realm services. Working with Local Authorities, we enhance and maintain the structures that underpin everyday life, developing outstanding public spaces that allow communities to grow and prosper.

 

It's only going to get done by volunteers as the council couldn't care less. I will be giving a hand to get the job done.

Fly tippers,bane of my life for the past 8 months whilst looking after what is left of Holmer Trading Est.

I have caught four people red handed tipping rubbish,another left some junk mail in his name so I went around to his home and told him to remove

it within 24hrs while he was protesting that it was not him.Hey presto,24hrs later it was gone.
The police were called around 1am in the morning when a neighboring house saw headlights of a large van.Police caught them and told me they had

came from Gloucestershire to dump rubbish.We now have Harris fencing all down left side but they still come and dump rubbish.

Good job done in cleaning up the footpaths/verges around Muir Close garages and Sherborne Close electric sub-station today organised through Alexandra Nicholas from Herefordshire Housing with Hereford Community Clean Up Group. 49 sacks of overgrown hedges and kerbs today within Newton Farm Ward.

 

Compare pics in Post 131 above to see difference.

I would say more likely 4 people Cllr Rone does not look like he got stuck in might be wrong but I don't think so.

 

The other 4 must have worked very hard to achieve that well done just hope it will be kept tidy now.  It makes so much difference when you live in a clean tidy environment

I took the photo later in the afternoon. There had been several other people helping out so altogether about 8 people. I didn't realise that Cllr Rone was present, but I can vouch that he did contribute to the action. Glenda the man in the red cap was Phil Edwards. It just shows what can be done. If this good work continues I will have to change the title on this thread to "I told you it would get better"! I notice that this topic has been viewed 31,125 times - lets hope it encourages others to get involved. I have tried to get our local shop to stock a few litter pickers, but nothing for sale so far.
