AUDIO BRIEFING: Raymond Jackson tells BBC “we’ve had some successes but a massive clean-up is needed”
“It’s a real pain in the neck” Neighbourhood Action Group chair Raymond Jackson told the BBC this week, during an interview about Colnbrook’s fly-tipping situation.
NAG chair Raymond Jackson was interviewed by Phil Kennedy this week, for BBC Radio Berkshire’s prime drive time show on Wednesday evening.
He explained that the village’s proximity to the M25 meant it was an easy option for fly-tippers to enter the village from either end to dump their rubbish under the cover of darkness. The sofas and settees dumped in ditches around the village were a potential flood risk, he said.
Acknowledging the support given to the NAG by Slough Borough Council and the “many committed residents from within Colnbrook and Poyle” Mr Jackson nevertheless said he wanted more residents needed to get involved “and report things on a daily basis”.
He said the current campaign in conjunction with Slough, Spelthorne, and Highways England, would continue and the NAG would carry out further activities to coincide with the clean-up campaign in March for the Queen’s birthday. It was hoped that teams from across Colnbrook could be recruited to assist in “a massive clean-up”.
