Great & Little Kimble cum Marsh Parish Council

Council challenge

(Kimble Stewart Hall)

Great & Little Kimble cum Marsh Parish is set in the beautiful Vale of Aylesbury at the foot of The Chiltern Hills in Buckinghamshire.

Each and everyone of our councillors welcome you to our rural parish. We are situated on the northern edge of the Wycombe District, with rich lower farm land to the North rising into part of the magnificent Chiltern Hills to the South.

The 394 homes are well spread across 1,212 hectares. The main settlements are Smoky Row, Clanking, Marsh, Kimblewick, Little Kimble and Great Kimble.

The southern part of the parish is within the Chilterns Area Of Outstanding Natural Beauty and The Green Belt – an area representing nearly 25% of the parish. The rest is most attractive too, and we strive to keep it that way.

The National Trust owns the land around Pulpit Hill. There is a network of public footpaths and bridleways from which to explore the varied countryside within the parish.

The population is growing, with many young families now taking the numbers to just over 1,000 (988 in the 2001 Census).

Council unveils new weapons in the battle to beat fly-tipping in Bucks

Buckinghamshire Council is deploying innovative, new measures in the battle to stop fly-tipping in the county. Intelligent cameras have been installed in hot spot areas in the south of the county. In addition, unofficial layby areas are being blocked and turned into grassy banks in another tactic to combat the criminals who dump waste illegally.

The council has taken a zero-tolerance approach to fly-tipping for over a decade and has successfully prosecuted hundreds of offenders. It costs the council over £600k each year to clear up rubbish that has been illegally dumped on public land – money that could be spent on providing other much needed services to the county’s residents.

Using £50k of funding from DEFRA (Dept for Environment, Farming & Rural Affairs), the new cameras can identify when a vehicle has left rubbish behind and in real time, will provide a video report of the incident to enforcement officers, including the registration of the vehicle, making it easier to identify and prosecute fly-tippers.

In a move to reduce the places where fly-tippers can dump, the council has carried out work to build up grass banks at several locations. The work has been carried out by re-using 400 tonnes of inert (tested) soil that was illegally dumped previously elsewhere in Bucks.

Gareth Williams, Cabinet Member for Climate Change and Environment said:

“We want to make it clear to all would-be criminals, we won’t tolerate fly-tipping in Bucks and we will continue to use all available means to make sure anyone who does carry out this atrocious crime will be caught and prosecuted. These new intelligent cameras will make it much easier to prosecute fly-tippers and allow for quicker clean-up.

“My message to residents is; if you’re having rubbish removed, please don’t pay cash. Use a company that has a Waste Carrier Licence, and ask for a record of who you’ve paid. By having an electronic method of payment, you can help us track down and prosecute the fly-tipper.”

When the enforcement team investigates a fly-tipping incident and finds evidence that leads to a householder, they will visit them and ask for evidence that they’ve taken reasonable steps to identify the person they hired to remove their rubbish and to ensure that it would be disposed of properly.

If the householder can provide evidence of the identity of the person who took their rubbish away such as details of a bank card payment, the investigation can move to focus on the fly-tipper. However, if the householder has paid an unidentified individual cash in hand to remove rubbish, they may be issued with a £400 fixed penalty notice for failing in their ‘duty of care’. If the incident is serious, this might be escalated to a court summons that could result in a criminal conviction and a hefty fine.

If you’re unsure of how to make sure you’re doing the right thing when someone is taking away your rubbish, our S.C.R.A.P. fly-tipping campaign code is a useful tool.
