Since September your District Council has been able to use new fixed penalty notices to tackle the menace of fly-tipping throughout the Dales.
We already have an excellent record of clearing up fly-tipped waste and of taking action through the courts where we can prove who was responsible for the tipping.
Now we have additional powers to issue fixed penalty notices of £200 for lower level fly-tipping offences.
More serious cases will continue to be pursued through the courts as we still want to use our full range of powers to discourage anyone from tipping waste in the beautiful Derbyshire Dales and to penalise anyone who does.
- Remember, you can quickly report a fly-tip online
