Man sentenced for illegal fly tippingfly tipping

Fareham Borough Council has successfully prosecuted Kevin Richard Goodenough for illegally fly tipping in the front and rear gardens of a Council owned property.

Mr Goodenough has been sentenced to 225 hours of unpaid work and fined £5,000 after pleading guilty to three counts of fly tipping at Fareham Magistrates Court. He will also have to pay Fareham Borough Council's £1,000 in legal costs.

Deputy Executive Leader of Fareham Borough Council, Trevor Cartwright MBE said: "This is a great result for the Council and sends out a strong message that fly tipping won't be tolerated in Fareham."

Fareham Borough Council takes a zero tolerance in respect of fly tipping. Through the investigation process, and where evidence is found which links to the offender or household to the fly tipping, action will be taken.

The Council aim to  remove incidents of fly tipping on public land within five working days of it being reported  For more information please contact the Customer Service Centre on 01329 236100 or customerservicecentre@fareham.gov.uk.
