No Fly Tipping Please!

Recently a constituent complained about fly tipping taking place in garage sites here in Ashmore Park. The garages are the property of Wolverhampton Homes. They sent a team out and cleaned up the two garage sites that were reported.

Then a few days ago, my constituent was back in touch making the situation clear that the fly tippers were back again, dumping their rubbish and littering the estate. I contacted the Wolverhampton Homes team and here is their response – “Wolverhampton Homes Estate Services will make arrangements for one of the Caretaking teams to attend and remove the fly-tipped items from the garage sites at Wolmer Road and Ferguson Street. Whilst on site removing items from the Ferguson Street garage site the Estate Caretakers will take photographs and obtain details of the perpetrator which we will forward to the City Council’s Public Protection Compliance Officers to consider further action.”

The Wolverhampton Homes management team reminded me that they visit all garage sites in WH management, and they are included in a scheduled works programme, and are visited on a bi-monthly basis.  

I am very grateful to Wolverhampton Homes who are doing their best to keep the Ashmore Park Estate in good conditions. I am sure the vast majority of readers will agree with these sentiments.
