Flytipping meeting following ongoing complaints in Frome

In response to continued complaints from local residents about the ongoing serious flytipping on Gypsy Lane and Berkley Lane, which has gone on for years just outside Frome, local district councillors Adam Boyden and Peter Knibbs have organised a public meeting on the issue. 

The meeting is on Monday 28th April at 7.00 – 8.30pm at Frome Rugby Club, and all are welcome.

The meeting will give local residents a chance to hear from and question Mendip District Council’s enforcement officer, the Police and local councillors about what is being done, and what more can be done, to tackle the problem.

Councillor Adam Boyden said, “The idea is that by bringing the local community and public agencies together, people can contribute ideas and get involved to help the council and police to work together on a plan to effectively eradicate flytipping in our area. I also want people to be reassured that if they know who is doing the flytipping, they can report this to the council and police without any fear.”

Councillor Peter Knibbs added, “We are working across party lines on this as we are all determined to pursue this problem until it is finally resolved.”
