Consultation on Gating Order follows Poyle flytipping prosecution
The statutory consultation for Slough Borough Council’s Gating Order on Prescott Road, Poyle, has begun.
The application follows the successful prosecution of Rajinder Jabbal, 57, director of the now-defunct JBL Construction Ltd, who was fined £1,000 and ordered to pay £1,815 costs for giving rubbish to an illegal waste carrier who dumped it in Prescott Road, Colnbrook.
A CCTV camera has already been installed in Prescott Road and other options are being considered to help stop fly-tipping there.
Esther Deacon, community safety project officer, said following the prosecution in early April:
“Due to the ongoing problems with fly-tipping in Prescott Road, the public health risk and the associated costs of rubbish removal, we want to apply for a gating order to install two barriers and close off a section of the road to vehicles, although pedestrians would still have access.”
The initial proposal was to install vehicle barriers at each end of a section of the road to tackle fly tipping. The proposal is now to install fencing and gates at each end to reduce the chances of being able to fly tip over the barrier.
Pedestrians will still have access; there would be a 1.2metre gap at each end for pedestrians to still gain access. Emergency services will also have access.
The deadline for responses for the consultation will be Monday 20th May.
The consultation will be sent out to all statutory undertakes, adjoining businesses and will also go in the Slough Express and on the council website.
