Reported via desktop in the General fly tipping category anonymously at 11:53, Wed 13 October 2021

Sent to Peterborough City Council 1 hour, 28 minutes later. Council ref: 3059767.

There is a considerable amount of rubbish that has been left at this location for some time >3 weeks. There is now a rat infestation. I managed to count at least 6-7.

The cycle/walk lane heading west from this location is also extremely littered, and rats are common along this route.

  • We were unable to clear this fly tip. It may be that we were unable to locate it or it may have been on private land.

    Fly-tipping will only be cleared from land owned or maintained by Peterborough City Council. We are unable to clear fly-tipping from private land as this is the responsibility of the land owner.

    Whilst we cannot provide further details at this time, residents can obtain information on land ownership through HM Land Registry if required. In some cases, the council's environmental enforcement team will investigate further. Therefore, this job has not been completed.

    State changed to: No further action
