Fly Tipping Prosecutions

The request was successful.

Dear Dartford Borough Council,

In a recent FOI request, I asked for the number of successful fly-tipping prosecutions but the answer given below by the council did not give a direct answer: -

FPNs for Fly-Tipping? AND Successful prosecutions for Fly-Tipping? -
Between April 2018 and March 2021, the DBC Environmental Enforcement Team
carried out 1445 formal Fly- Tipping investigations and obtained 611
successful results via FPNs or prosecutions or cautions / warnings.

Can you please confirm only the number of successful fly-tipping prosecutions there were for the periods: -

2018/19
2019/20
2020/21 (to date if not a complete period)

Yours faithfully,

Danny Lucas

FOI (Dartford),

Thank you for your FOI request which will be responded to within 20
working days unless the Council agrees an extension of time with you.

I have removed all litter offences (this will reduce the 611 total figure
