  • I have started the map and made a site visit if the alleyways all round the back of brindlegate and leading into old farm etc where council owned they would have been regularly maintained and cut back I'll have spoke to local residents and everybody thinks under the impression the alleyways are owned by why who ever owns a particular house the backs onto the alleyway they actually own that piece of land as well and it is up to them to maintain it SO ANY FLY-TIPPING DONE OR DUMPING OF RUBBISH IN THE ALLEYWAY IS NOT THE COUNCIL'S RESPONSIBILITY AND TECHNICALLY IS NOT EVEN AN OFFENCE

  • Back in 2020 someone reported a dumped fridge freezer in the alley and it was cleared https://fix.bexley.gov.uk/ report/ 2169628

    Surely these alleys are council owned

    There is a council sign at the top of the alley (photo shared) The rubbish is now starting to attract flies

  • Hi I remember fridefrezzer was removed under the danger to heath catagory , not because fly tipped , unfortunately very very few alleyways and rear drives have anything to do with the council and a magnet for FLY-TIPPING and FLY-TIPPERS cannot be prosecuted as it's not a criminal offence only if on public land

  • Another thing to keep in mind as alleyways are multiply owned prosecution would be a minefield

  • Nice picture of no FLY-TIPPING in alleyway sign no way that is in brindle gate

  • Alleyway is Old Farm Avenue, Brookend, Pinewood Avenue, Brindle Gate - they all back onto it at some point. That sign is on Hollies Avenue.

  • Why was sympathise with the people's whose houses back onto the alleyways as a local resident I will be disgusted if my tax has money was being used to clean up other people's mess it's pretty obvious the fly-tipping has been done by the residents of a houses it has not been done by someone driving up the ALLEYWAY to dispose of the rubbish one section I looked out was a mass of trees that have been cut down and also if you walk up brookend two of the alleyway is that meet I've totally and utterly overgrown ( so what you're saying is you want the council to be responsible for all the alleyways in Sidcup I don't think that's going to happen)

  • Very confused if it's a council owned alley way why only complain now everyone of the ALLEYWAYS are overgrown , and loads of rubbish WHY HAS THE council never maintained them and kept them clear , if the public alley ways there's nothing stopping anyone setting up camp in them under rights of way act 1834
