WISE Fly Tipping Enforcement Review

Decision Maker: Cabinet

Decision status: For Determination

Is Key decision?: Yes

Is subject to call in?: Yes


To present the findings of the extended WISE Fly Tipping Pilot and to make recommendations for the future delivery of this service.



RESOLVED that Cabinet: -

(a)           approved the end of the existing pilot in March 2023;

(b)           approved Option 2, the extension of the scope of the service, to include investigation and issuing of fines for littering, fly-tipping and fly-posting offences to be provided by a contractor, subject to Tender process; and

(c)           approved the level of fines for littering at £150 with an early repayment level within 14 days of issue at £75.

Voting: Unanimous

Portfolio Holder: Community Safety and Regulatory Services


The Fly Tipping and Fly Posting Enforcement pilot over the last 14 months has delivered a robust response. It is therefore recommended that this continues.

In addition, a similar extended model to include littering enforcement is now recommended to tackle the environmental damage of this behaviour and to improve the quality of the environment across Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole. The costs of this service will be covered by the revenue collected from

payments of fines, of which 17.5% will be paid to the Council by the contractor, to be reinvested by the service.
