Flytipping remains a perennial issue for Local Authorities. Whilst criminal remedies exist, statistics suggest that such remedies are seldom relied upon. No doubt this is in no small part due to the difficultly in identifying the perpetrators. Research suggests that it is often highly organised gangs that are responsible for this behaviour.

The costs associated with cleaning up illegally dumped waste can be high, particularly where the waste is contaminated. It is against this background that a number of London Local Authorities have begun utilising the civil law to tackle these issues. There is extensive evidence that the use of possession orders and injunctions to prevent flytipping has proved to be highly successful.

This webinar will look at how these civil remedies operate in practice, what input is required from the local authority, how much the remedies cost and what practical benefits they may bring.

Hosted by Robert Phillips, Partner and Head of Property Litigation, and Rebecca Rees, Senior Associate in the Property Litigation team on Thursday 11 July at 12.00pm.
