New fly-tipping reporting service goes live
Residents will be able to report fly-tips more easily thanks to an improved service from Cotswold District Council.
A new online form will allow the user to pinpoint the fly-tip on an interactive map so they don’t have to spend time trying to describe the location or looking up a postcode.
That makes it is easier for the Council team to locate and with previously reported cases visible, it also means less duplication, allowing a quicker investigation and clean-up.
If a resident calls for more information about their report, the customer services team can give more detailed case information on the spot.
Cllr Andrew Doherty, Cabinet Member for Waste, Recycling and the Environment, said: “Fly-tipping is a crime as well as blight on the environment which we take very seriously.
“These improvements make it easier for residents to report fly-tipping, ensuring it is possible to clean-up fly-tips more effectively and pursue offenders more quickly.”
