Flytipped building equipment and hardcore

Reported in the Flytipping category anonymously at 09:28, Tuesday 8 September 2020

Sent to Vale of White Horse District Council less than a minute later

This was reported fixed many weeks ago (Council ref: 2172290) but there are still many barriers, both metal type and plastic type, and also a huge mound of spoil/gravel at this location. As the works finished months ago is it possible to prosecute the organization responsible? My understanding of flytipping law is the person or company that hires the company that then flytips waste is the one that is ultimately responsible? A council (VOTWH ? OCC?) contracted this construction company and signed off the job as complete therefore I know it will be difficult but can the council now take the fly-tippers to court( ie council v's council) as it is a clear case of dumping now. If the council is unwilling to take court action is there an environmental law firm, or even a green activist reading this that knows of such a law firm, that would take up what appears, after all this time, to be a very clear cut of case of fly tipping? this could be a very good income stream for such a law firm as fly tipping barriers/ warning signs after jobs are complete is a huge environmental problem but one easy to track the guilty parties.
