Fly Tipping

Local Landlord Ordered to Pay Over £15,000

 

Local landlord and property developer Mohammed Saleem of Bromham Road, Bedford was ordered to pay over £15,000 at Luton Magistrates Court on 4th July 2017 after being found guilty of a string of waste offences in Bedford. 

 

Bedford Borough Council’s Enviro Crime Team investigated three large fly tipping incidents in Bedford and Stagsden in 2013 and 2014. Evidence was found amongst the waste both from one of Mr Saleem’s rental properties that was being refurbished, and from his home address.

 

At an interview under Caution with Council officers, Mr Saleem denied any knowledge of the waste and could give no explanation as to why his waste was found illegally deposited at these locations. The Magistrates found Mr Saleem guilty of losing control of his waste and imposed a fine of £1,155 and he was ordered to pay £14,078 in costs.

 

Cllr Charles Royden, Portfolio Holder for the Environment said: “Fly tipping waste is not just an unacceptable crime; it is unsightly, unhygienic and can present a dangerous hazard. At Bedford Borough Council we will continue to enforce against it and prosecute offenders whenever possible.”
