A Northampton resident has been fined for failing to adhere to a community protection notice.

On Thursday, 22 June, Northampton Magistrates Court fined Miss Victoria Gould for not complying with a community protection notice related to an accumulation of waste at her property in Overstone Lodge.

Victoria Gould, who lives on Entwood Drive, was fined £500 and ordered to pay a victim surcharge of £50 and legal and remedial costs of £383.

Cllr Mike Hallam, the Council’s cabinet member for environment, said: “The Council is committed to keeping our communities safe and clean.

“On top of routine monitoring carried out by the environmental protection team, we investigate any areas of concern. Where possible we try to resolve any issues directly with those concerned but will take action if the problems persist.”

The Borough Council is here to help and asks for any resident needing advice about the disposal of waste to call our environmental health team on 0300 330 7000. In addition, anyone concerned about a particular premise are also urged to get in touch.
