Dramatic About Change! Baylis Avenue Fly-Tip Removal.

Earlier this week I reported on a large Fly-tip that had taken place in a Garage site at Baylis Ave here on Ashmore Park. I reported that this item was brought to my attention by local residents.

I reported that the City Council and Wolverhampton Homes were going to use their own resources to clear the site of Fly -Tip. Well there is a dramatic change in the planned process. Here is a portion of correspondence that indicates a new approach.

“Dear Councillor Bateman Thank you for your enquiry regarding the garage site at Baylis Avenue

Our estate caretaking teams were on site earlier this week to commence clearance works of the fly-tipped items.

We have found some evidence linking the fly-tipping to an address in ********* . We have been in contact with the occupier who has advised us that they are taking steps to have the rubbish removed from the site. We have advised that the site will be re-visited during week commencing 6th September to ensure that this is the case. If required, our caretaking teams from Wolverhampton Homes will intervene and clear the site as previously arranged and look to a recharge.”

Thank you for everyone that has offered advice. Its wrong that public money has to be used to clear sites of peoples own household rubbish, in this instance this now will not be the case.
