Lib Dems Slam NELCs 'Clear It Scheme'

Council’s Clear It scheme “falls short,” says Liberal Democrat Councillors,

Local Liberal Democrat Councillors have criticised North East Lincolnshire Council’s approach to tackling fly-tipping in the borough, stating that the recent ‘Clear It’ scheme falls short of tackling the root causes of the issue.

Over 16 tonnes of waste were successfully cleared from private land on Oxford Court in Grimsby under the scheme as a result of collaborative voluntary efforts from local residents, ward councillors, and support from North East Lincolnshire Council, who provided bins and facilitated waste disposal.

Despite the successes of the project, councillors have expressed disappointment with the “lack of proactive enforcement intervention” from the Council, while emphasising the importance of holding private landowners accountable for maintaining their own properties. They also stressed the need for additional Council enforcement measures to identify culprits, along with methods to prevent repeat occurrences, which Lib Dem Campaigner Loyd Emmerson labelled as a ‘borough-wide’ issue.

Hear from Cllrs Nicola Aisthorpe, Steve Beasant, and Loyd Emmerson as they continued their work at Oxford Court in Grimsby today.
