Fly-tipping is continuing to occur regularly on the streets of Queen’s Park and Charminster.
Hard-working local campaigner Alasdair Keddie says: “I have been recording & reporting the regular fly-tipping in Queen's Park since last year. In January alone I reported over 100 fly-tipped bin bags to BCP Council.
“I’ve now recruited a small team of concerned, community-minded local residents. We keep in touch electronically about new incidents, and we have lively discussions about our plans to get the ongoing issue taken more seriously by those with the power to take enforcement action.
“So far we’ve been disappointed by the lack of action from the Neighbourhood Policing Team and the Council Enforcement Officers. We’re looking to grow our community action group into an official Neighbourhood Watch scheme for Queen’s Park & Charminster. This would give our community more clout to get the Neighbourhood Police to talk to us about the ongoing issues and what they can do to help clear them up.
“If you are interested in participating in our group, please do contact me.”
