Dear Ellan,

Littering and Fly tipping are a District Council function, not a Parish
Council duty. We do not issue FPN nor have employees that deal with
littering & fly-tipping.

 

We contract with our District Council for the provision of Neighbourhood
Wardens and part of their remit is to monitor and report littering & fly
tipping so you would need to contact the District Council for details.

 

 

Thanks,

Karen Dare
