Dear Ms. Howard
Freedom of Information Request
I refer to your correspondence dated 10th January, 2019.
I can confirm that there were 1056 reported fly tipping incidents during the financial year
2017-2018. I can also confirm that 27 persons were issued Fixed Penalty Notices and 34
persons were subsequently prosecuted. The waste associated with these fly tipping
incident, was either removed by the depositor, the Local Authority (if on our land), the
Probation Services (if on unregistered land) or the land owner themselves.
The wards with the highest rate of fly tipping are Port Talbot and Aberavon.
If you are dissatisfied with the response to your request, under the Authority’s FOI Policy,
you may appeal in writing setting out the reasons why you think the decision is erroneous,
to the Authority’s Monitoring Officer at the following address: Head of Legal Services,
Civic Centre, Port Talbot, SA13 1PJ.
In the event that you appeal and are dissatisfied with the response, you may then appeal
direct to the Information Commissioner, whose address is: Wycliffe House, Water Lane,
Wilmslow, SK9 4AF.
