Map Highlights Fly Tipping in The Cotswolds

Cotswold District Council’s Environmental Services team has recently produced a map that shows locations in the District where fly tipping is most prevalent, with the aim of enlisting the public’s help to crack down on illegal dumping ‘hot spots’.

[Note a red pin on the map near Upper Rissington.]

The Council is urging local residents to study the map and be extra vigilant in the areas marked with a red pin, reporting any suspicious tipping activities to the Council whenever possible.

Cllr Andrew Doherty, CDC’s Cabinet Member with responsibility for tackling fly tipping, explains: “Cotswold District, covering 450 square miles, is one of the largest districts in the country making it difficult to guard against determined fly tippers. We hope that highlighting the areas where this is more common will enable local residents to help identify these criminals and reduce the impact on their environment.

“No-one should put themselves in danger, but it is always useful to be vigilant for suspicious tipping activity. You should inform the Council about suspicious activity ASAP by calling on 01285 623123 or via our online form. The more detail you can provide the more likely it is to have results.

“We are grateful for the help we receive from residents to combat this unacceptable crime, and hope that this new map will generate even more referrals. Rest assured that if we can trace and identify offenders, we will always take steps to prosecute them.”

Your Invitation to the Annual Parish Meeting 2019

The date has been set for the Annual Parish Meeting, which will take place on Wednesday 29 May, starting at 7pm in the Village Hall.

Over the past few years, this meeting has been used as an opportunity for local groups to give a report on their activities, and for residents to learn more about what’s happening around the village. Police, county, district and parish council will give a short review of the past year. It also provides a greater opportunity to discuss local issues with council members in a more informal setting.

The meeting is open to all local electors in the parish of Upper Rissington, and we look forward to welcoming you. Please join us for light refreshments from 7pm, with presentations starting at 7:30pm.
