Fly tippers back in norbury park

From Patrick Bisgood

There has been another serious case of fly tipping in Norbury Park, following two similar incidents in April.

This time the rubbish was dumped on grazing land in the area known as Keepers’ Grasses. As before, Surrey Wildlife Trust responded quickly after the first report around November 8th and the rubbish was removed by the following Tuesday.

However, this is time consuming, costly, and diverts funds from important conservation work.

Hopefully, the incident and what can be done to discourage others like it, will be discussed at the meeting of the Norbury Park Community Forum on 28th November.

In responding to incidents such as these in a timely manner, Surrey Wildlife Trust, as estate manager, relies to a great extent on feedback from users of Norbury Park.

If you come across any such incidents please report them as soon as possible to Surrey Wildlife Trust on 01483-910087 or Countryside@surreywt.org.uk.  They may be unaware of it. 

Other incidents of fly tipping can also be reported to Mole Valley District Council. Fly tipping is a serious criminal offence, but for obvious reasons gathering sufficient evidence is often difficult.

Other illegal activities such as motorbikes and quad bikes being ridden on bridle paths or footpaths can be reported to the police on 101.
