Spate of fly-tips laced with asbestos near Deanshanger

Spate of fly-tips laced with asbestos near Deanshanger

Wed, 13 Sep 2017 17:26 by Dick Stephen

The taxpayer has been left carrying the cost after a spate of fly-tips along the border of Northamptonshire and Buckinghamshire which included harmful asbestos.

During August and September environmental enforcement officers from South Northamptonshire Council (SNC) were called to five fly-tips, all situated off the A422 between Leckhampstead and Old Stratford.

Each incident included similar waste building materials, packaged in a similar way, and enforcement officers believe the waste may originate from the same site. More »

It is estimated the waste would have filled at least three transit vans and has cost the council £2,000 to remove.

Cllr Dermot Bambridge, SNC's portfolio holder for environmental services, said: "We have reason to believe this waste is coming from somewhere local. If anyone has information about these fly-tips or witnessed a van or lorry behaving suspiciously in the area please contact us on 01327 322347."

The date they were reported and details for each incident are as follows:

  • Thursday, 24 August - SNC officers found loose builders waste and builders waste in thick black sacks in the small lay-by at the end of Deanshanger Road leaving Old Stratford, just along from the Community Centre
  • Friday, 25 August - loose and bagged builders waste found in the copse area by the junctions of Passenham Road and the A422
  • Friday, 7 September - asbestos found in Leckhampstead Road, Wicken
  • Friday, 7 September - second report of asbestos dumped in Leckhampstead Road, Wicken
  • On Friday, 8 September - SNC received reports of a second fly-tip on Passenham Road

When asbestos is broken up it can release dangerous fibres which can be fatal if inhaled and requires specialist handling and disposal.

Anyone disposing of waste from their property must take reasonable measures to ensure the person taking it away is authorised to do so.

Authorised waste carriers must have a waste carrier's licence, and householders should ask to see it and should obtain a receipt.

Householders should also make a note of the collector's name, telephone number and vehicle details, and be wary of individuals advertising waste collection services on social media or those 'door knocking.'

Form drop complete for annual electoral canvass

Form drop complete for annual electoral canvass

Tue, 12 Sep 2017 17:38 by Dick Stephen

Forms have now been sent to all 40,427 households across South Northamptonshire as part of the annual canvass which requires all eligible voters to confirm or update their details on the electoral register.

All forms have now been delivered and anyone who has yet to receive one should contact South Northamptonshire Council (SNC) by emailing elections@cherwellandsouthnorthants.gov.uk or by calling 01327 322128 to request a form to be sent out manually. More »

Yvonne Rees, Electoral Registration Officer for SNC, said: "Making sure your details are up to date has a positive impact on your credit rating, so taking just a few minutes to update your form can have a big impact."

The forms will list the eligible voters in the household. If the information is correct then residents need only confirm the information using the telephone, text message or online system to confirm this by calling 0800 197 9871, texting 80212; or visiting www.householdresponse.com/cherwellandsouthnorthants.

Each form will have a security code printed on it that is unique to the address; residents will need to input this code so that the council updates the correct property.

If any information has changed, residents will need to update the details on the document and return it to the council in the self-addressed envelope which is enclosed. It is a legal requirement for residents to respond.

If when responding to the initial form, new people are added to the property, they will receive a form addressed specifically to them which asks for their National Insurance number and date of birth. This is the second part of the registration process, and this form must be returned to complete the registration.

Alternatively, complete an online registration by visiting www.gov.uk/register-to-vote.

Any household who hasn't responded to the initial form by Sunday, 17 September will receive a reminder letter ahead of the electoral canvassers undertaking a door knocking campaign at the end of next month. Residents are therefore urged to respond as soon as possible to reduce the costs of this process which is paid for using taxpayers' money. » Less
