Westfield property owners will be fined if they don’t clean up their act

Slough Council is continuing to support the Neighbourhood Action Group in its bid to clean up Colnbrook.

Garage owners in Colnbrook filled two rubbish skips after a successful clean-up operation on the Westfield Estate during last year's Big Tidy Up

Garage owners at Westfield filled two rubbish skips after a successful clean-up operation during 2014’s Big Tidy Up.  But the rubbish keeps on coming.

Clean up notices have been issued to landowners following the recent fly-tipping at Westfield, the Council has informed the Neighbourhood Action Group.

The recent fly-tipping at Westfield is being dealt with by Slough Borough Council’s Neighbourhood East Team, SBC’s Esther Masters told NAG members at their first meeting of 2016 on January 13th.

If no action is taken the Council says it will arrange for contractors to remove the waste and bill the landowners.

Council representatives have also visited Millbrook Way, Poyle, an area reported to be in use by foreign lorry drivers as a dumping ground and toilet. The Council says it is now dealing with the issue.

And following the removal of litter from the roundabout at Junction 14 additional measures are being considered to clean up other areas on this approach to Colnbrook, and the approach from Colnbrook, as they continue to be used as a dumping area.

NAG chair Raymond Jackson has proposed a meeting with representatives from other agencies in the area – including Highways England and other local authorities – to try and agree a common approach to tackling the problem.

The meeting of the Neighbourhood Action Group also discussed the latest crime figures, traffic enforcement action, the roll-out of LED street lighting in the village, and the NAG’s participation in the Clean for the Queen campaign set to coincide with the Queen’s birthday, in March.
