| March 11, 2015


On Wednesday 4th March 2015 a 48 year old man of Howard Avenue, Slough, Berkshire pleaded guilty at Wycombe Magistrates Court to an offence of dumping waste illegally in Dorney Wood Road, Burnham.

The court heard that on the afternoon of Tuesday 21st October 2014 the man was seen by a passing motorist in Dorney Wood Road, Burnham, standing at the rear of his parked vehicle holding a broken paving slab.

The motorist took the registration number of the vehicle as it passed him travelling away from the lay-by where it had been parked.

When the motorist then passed the lay-by he saw rubble and broken paving slabs dumped on the ground. The incident was reported to the authorities.

A Waste Partnership for Buckinghamshire investigator subsequently interviewed the man at a police station, during which he made full admission to dumping the rubble and paving slabs, which had come from his garden.

The Magistrates fined the man £285 and ordered him to pay £1,006 towards prosecution costs. A victim surcharge of £20 was levied, making a total to pay of £1,311.

The case was prosecuted by Buckinghamshire County Council working on behalf of the Waste Partnership for Buckinghamshire.
