Property firm fined £2,000 for fly-tipping

A property company has been fined £2,000 for fly-tipping waste in Bristol.

Peter Tisdale, of London-based That Property Group Clifton, was sentenced at Bristol Magistrates Court after admitting the offence last November.

He was also ordered to pay £500 costs and £120 victim surcharge by magistrates.

The company was developing a property on a former WH Smith site off Clifton Down Road when a hoarding blew down, exposing more than half a tonne of dumped waste, including old Christmas trees, plastic banners and building waste.

Following complaints, a Bristol City Council officer asked for the site to be cleared and it was within a week.

Cabinet member for neighbourhoods Margaret Hickman said: “This case sends a clear message that we simply will not tolerate fly-tipping in Bristol, and prosecutions will be brought against anybody found to be fly-tipping.

“During 2015-16, 1,273 tonnes of waste was fly-tipped across our city, costing the tax payer an estimated £450,000 for removal and disposal.”
