Local Government Association wants maximum punishment to be handed out to fly-tippers, but a South Holland environmental leader has concerns
A call for tougher punishments to be handed out to fly-tippers has been challenged by one of those tackling the problem in South Holland.
Coun Roger Gambba-Jones, in charge of environmental services across the area, suggested that a "measured approach"was needed to the fly-tipping problem.
A report by the Local Government Association (LGA), a body representing county, district, parish and town councils in England and Wales, urged the Government to review the guidance it gives courts on sentencing those convicted of fly-tipping.
