Flytipper fined after Solihull Council crackdown and prosecution

SOLIHULL Council has prosecuted a Birmingham man for an incident of fly tipping off Bickenhill Road in Marston Green in 2018.

Taier Hakim of Walmley Road, Sutton Coldfield pleaded guilty to three breaches of the Environmental Protection Act 1990 on Friday January 17, 2020 at Birmingham Magistrates Court.

He was convicted of three fly tipping offences relating to one fly tipping incident which was reported to the council on July 17, 2018.

Overall, the court ordered him to pay a total of £920, payable within 14 days.




Councillor Alison Rolf, Cabinet Member for Stronger and Safer Communities, commented on the result saying: “I am extremely glad that justice has been served. Fly tipping is a highly anti-social and selfish crime which shows no regard for local residents or for the environment.

“The penalty handed down by the Court shows that we in Solihull are serious about tackling fly-tipping. We simply will not tolerate it and look to prosecute where we can”.
