People concerned about fly-tipping will have the chance to air their views in Letchworth tomorrow afternoon.

Officers from the Letchworth Safer Neighbourhood Team and North Herts District Council representatives will be on hand to discuss recycling and waste between 1pm and 4pm at Ivel Court on the Jackmans Estate.

Over the past six months, the team has been working with the district council and North Hertfordshire Homes to discuss community concerns including fly-tipping, dog fouling, noisy neighbours and anti-social motorcyclists.

Organiser PCSO Martin Barringer said: “These events are a great opportunity for residents to meet with their local policing team to discuss any issues they may have.

“We’re interested in what you have to say and are keen to talk to residents about what we’re doing to keep the area you live in, safe.

“Fly-tipping is an issue we take very seriously as it blights the area and the impact on residents and rural communities is huge.

“There are serious health and safety issues around dumped waste as well as the enormous cost to taxpayers to clean up the fly-tipped areas.

“The main focus of this event will be around offering people advice which will hopefully prevent incidents of fly-tipping of domestic household waste.”

Anyone with concerns can contact officers via the non-emergency number 101.
