Police, Fire & Crime Commissioner extends fly-tipping removal scheme to help landowners
Dear Parish Clerk
A pilot scheme to support landowners with the cost of removing fly-tipping from their land and securing it against future incidents is being rolled out across the county.
Earlier this year, Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner Stephen Mold set up a scheme to help farmers and landowners, with a view to intervening early to prevent crime and to assist in tracking down people who are fly-tipping. More »
The pilot scheme was run in conjunction with the former East Northamptonshire District and Daventry District Councils and the Commissioner's Office will now take it forward in conjunction with the two successor authorities, North Northamptonshire Council and West Northamptonshire Council.
Local authorities do not remove fly-tipped waste on private land, which is the responsibility of the landowner to clear.
Under this new scheme, farmers and private landowners can apply for a grant towards the cost of having the fly-tipped waste cleared away and to support them in putting prevention measures in place that will make the land less vulnerable to fly-tippers in the future.
Grants of up to £1,500 are available and the scheme is now open to landowners across Northamptonshire who can apply by contacting their relevant local authority.
