Clearing up rubbish filled forecourts


New rules brought in by the Liberal Democrat-run City Council will see a crackdown on tenants and landlords of Houses in Multiple Occupation (HMOs) - if they fail to dispose of their rubbish correctly.

New rules brought in by the Liberal Democrat-run City Council will see a crackdown on tenants and landlords of Houses in Multiple Occupation (HMOs) - if they fail to dispose of their rubbish correctly.

We promised in our manifesto cleaner streets and these rules will ensure residents do not have to suffer dumped rubbish in their neighbour's front gardens or on the street.

Tenants or landlords could face a fine of up to £5000 if they allow rubbish to build up in their forecourt or if rubbish in the street it is linked back to a property without a forecourt.

Liberal Democrat Councillor Darren Sanders the new Cabinet Member for Housing said "Today I sent those who ruin our streets with rubbish a clear message: dumping waste outside or leaving it to rot in forecourts is not acceptable and will be dealt with."
