Barton 10 times worse than anywhere else in Gloucester for flytipping

2 posts in this topic

Flytipping in Barton is about 10 times worse than any other area in the city, according to council figures.

A staggering 1,519 incidents of illegal dumping in Barton and Tredworth were reported to the city council in 2015, prompting calls for the area to be given 'special treatment' against litter bugs.

Of course we are seeing the usual claims that this area has special needs. Utter rubbish

Hi

Don't know about 'Special needs', but I suspect the number is far higher. Much of the figures quoted would be in the courtyard behind my flat!

Took two truck loads to clear it all away earlier this week. And that was probably only done because they're redeveloping the building behind us into flats.

We've had special help from council workers, but the police have little power because it's on private land. Seems we have to catch the tippers in the act.

Thanks

Paul Harries
