Fly-tipping hotspots identified in Farnley and Wortley areas

Fly-tipping continues to be an ongoing problem in Farnley & Wortley ward – with a number of hot spots identified, councillors have been told.

Members of the Outer West Community Committee received a report from housing team leader Joanne Taylor detailing a number of areas of concern. These included:

Bawn estate, the Billy Lane grassed area, grassed area behind Nutting Grove Terrace and Gamble Hill Rise garage site.

The report said the council was looking to install security lighting around the garages to prevent fly-tipping and repeat vandalism of garage doors and fly-tipping in the
garages themselves.

Ms Taylor wrote:

“Fly-tipping continues to be an ongoing issue in the Farnley and Wortley area and we have identified a number of hot spots which we are working closely with Cleaner neighbourhoods and neighbourhood housing services to look at measures to find solutions to minimise the impact on residents and the local community.

“Housing officers are also working with neighbourhood service officers within the hotspots to look at preventative measures.”

The meeting, which was held at Leeds Civic Hall, also heard Gamble Croft and Grange has had an issue with bin waste capacity, which has been resolved by an extra collection.

Complaints have also been raised over the cleanliness of Gamble Croft and Grange. The issue has been put down to a lack of resources.

The Outer West Community Committee is made up of nine councillors from Calverley & Farsley, Farnley & Wortley and Pudsey wards, who make decisions about services and priorities for the local area.
