Newham Council warning over dumped building material
Householders and builders in Newham have been warned not to illegally dump any unwanted material on the public highway.
Council enforcement officers will be on patrol in the borough to crackdown on anyone caught fly-tipping.
People caught leaving material on roads or pavements without a licence face a �150 fine or even criminal prosecution.
Newham Cllr Ian Corbett, executive member for infrastructure and environment, said: “Building material illegally left outside properties isn’t just an eyesore – it can also be dangerous. We want to ensure Newham is kept clean and road users are safe.”
Conditions will apply to the licence, such as a maximum period of time.
