  1. Luppitt Parish Council |

    Luppitt Parish Council strongly objects to further charges being made at Devon’s Recycling Centres for the disposal of non-household waste. The Parish Council feels that this can only lead to more instances of fly tipping. There have been 5 or 6 incidents of fly tipping already this year and increased charges can only lead to more of the same. We live in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and Devon County Council should not introduce measures that will threaten the area.

    I feel that environmental services spending should be increasing as we need to improve our environment and our recycling rates and a reduction in any services in this area increases the likelihood of fly tipping and the detriment this has on the countryside and the environment and the greater overall cost of addressing fly tipping.
