An East Riding resident has been prosecuted for a littering offence on Holderness Road in Hull. Deniz Yeter of Southwood Avenue, Cottingham was prosecuted and ordered to pay a total of £400 (£220 fine, £30 victim surcharge and £150 costs) by Hull Magistrates for a littering offence contrary to Section 87 Environmental Protection Act 1990. This case was brought after CCTV evidence was obtained relating to a littering offence from a vehicle on a public car park on Holderness Road, Hull.
Two Hull residents were also prosecuted for offences concerning the condition of their properties.
Dorothy Darnley of Suffolk Street, Hull was prosecuted and ordered to pay a total of £530 (£220 fine, £30 victim surcharge and £260 costs) for failing to comply with a statutory notice served under Section 80 Environmental Protection Act 1990. This notice was served by the council in response to a complaint concerning the condition of the defendants property. The defendant failed to respond to any formal warning or legal notice, and works were carried out in default. These costs were subsequently recovered as part of the prosecution.
Bryan Wilson of Laburnum Avenue, Hull was prosecuted twice for offences relating to two properties he owned on Laburnum Avenue and Newland Park, Hull. He was ordered to pay a total of £325 (£220 fine, £30 victim surcharge and £490 costs) by Hull Magistrates for offences contrary to Section 216 Town and Country Planning Act 1990 (As Amended) following complaints about the condition of the land at each of the properties. The defendant failed to respond to any formal warning or legal notice, and works were carried out in default. These costs were subsequently recovered as part of the prosecution.
Councillor Clark said:
By taking a tough stance on enforcement we can deter any potential offenders, and we encourage members of the public not to shrink from reporting any perpetrators they see. We will prosecute, and when convicted we will name and shame in the hope that we can stamp out this anti-social behaviour.
Dumping is a crime, help us and make those who do it pay for it. See it, report it, stop it.
