Camden council tackles environmental crimes in the borough
Camden Council’s cabinet agreed to raise the level of Fixed Penalty Notices for a range of environmental crimes at its meeting last night (Wednesday 20 February).
The council want to ensure that Camden is a clean, vibrant and sustainable place and that people spoiling the environment should face the consequences of their actions.
“Fly-tipping, littering, and businesses putting their waste out wrong can have a huge impact on Camden’s streets. Invariably, taxpayers end up footing the bill to clean up after other people’s irresponsibility. Fixed Penalty Notice levels have not changed since 2006. So we want to take stronger action against those who commit these types of environmental crimes.”
Councillor Adam Harrison, Cabinet Member for Improving Camden's Environment
