by litter on the A63 and surrounding roads?
The annual ERYC clean-up of the
A63 commenced on 26th February and will take 15 nights to
complete from North Cave to the Hull border, subject to
weather conditions. The council would like to work with
interested parties to bring those responsible for littering
to account. Please see below a request from enforcement
officers at East Riding Council.
Littering is a criminal offence and
therefore it must be proven beyond reasonable doubt that
the person or businesses is in fact the party responsible.
We would therefore need witnesses who are willing to come
forward to contact the council with details as to what they
have witnessed including vehicles details, dates and times
of any incidences of littering. This will then enable us
consider appropriate further action in an attempt to improve
the situation. I very much hope that local residents are
willing and able to assist us in this.
Reporting littering incidences and littering
from vehicles can be done online via the council's website
by searching for littering. We would urge when reporting
that people do not do this anonymously as without a name
to support the report we cannot take further action.
& Relocation of Swanland GP surgery
