Bromley’s Envirocrime team are leaving no stone unturned in their efforts to bring a halt to rogue traders and others committing offences in the Borough.

Environmental Investigation Manager Dean Laws and his Neighbourhood Investigation Officers are responsible for helping ensure the Borough achieves its corporate objectives of being as clean, green, and safe as possible. This includes keeping roads and footpaths free from hazards or obstructions and helping combat crime that damages our environment, such as fly-tipping and graffiti.

The team responds to all reported complaints as well as carrying out routine inspections across the Borough, including known hotspot areas. Included in their responsibilities, the team have the power to enforce under numerous current legislations, foremost amongst them being the Environmental Protection Act 1990, which can result in the issuing of warnings, notices, fixed penalty notices, and even court proceedings against alleged offenders.

Over the past year no fewer than 88 fixed penalty notices have been issued for littering, fly-tipping and duty of care for waste with 83 Community Protection Warnings, as well as other warnings and 22 successful prosecutions. Eight vehicles used in illegal fly-tipping have been seized to prevent further use in this way.

Councillor Angela Page, Executive Councillor for Public Protection and Enforcement says “We are grateful to Dean and his team for his continued work to tackle envirocrime which could blight our Borough otherwise. Our Public Protection and Enforcement team do an exemplary job, but we know we can do so much more with the help of our residents and local businesses. Coming together as a community is important in fulfilling our mission to keep Bromley green and clean. We are grateful to everyone who helps us with that goal.”

Residents and visitors to the Borough are encouraged to report fly-tipping if they come across it, by visiting The Council’s Enviro-crime reward scheme provides for up to a £500 reward when information comes forward leading to a successful prosecution.
