As part of Harrow Conservatives mission to keep our borough clean and tidy by fighting fly-tipping, the Council has installed 15 new CCTV cameras at hotspot locations.
10 new CCTV cameras have already been installed in locations across Harrow.
These CCTV cameras provide critical evidence which helps the Council to find fly-tip perpetrators and issue £400 fines against offenders.
The initial locations for the new cameras have been decided using police and Council data as well as residents’ complaints to identity problem areas.
These CCTV cameras are mobile, meaning that when fly-tipping stops in one location then the cameras can be easily moved to another hotspot.
Cllr Anjana Patel, Cabinet Member responsible for Highways, Infrastructure and Community Safety said:
“Fly-tipping isn’t just disgusting, it’s a criminal offence and carried out by those who have no pride in their community. Like our residents, we are fed up seeing this happen on our streets. We know residents will welcome CCTV cameras in our hotspot areas to find and fine those offenders.”
