Builder pays the price for fly-tipping in Buckinghamshire

A builder from North London who tried to evade justice, has paid the price for fly-tipping in Buckinghamshire with a hefty fine imposed by the courts.

Faisal Kamran, from Northolt in North London, appeared at High Wycombe Magistrates Court on 30 November. Kamran previously ignored a court summons regarding the charge of illegal dumping and was arrested. When he finally appeared in court, he pleaded guilty to the charge.

The court heard that a pile of rubbish had been found on Wexham Park Lane on 27 April 2022, by an enforcement officer from Buckinghamshire Council. When examined, the waste led the officer to a householder who had recently had his bathroom renovated.

The householder revealed that Kamran had collected the waste which was later found dumped. When interviewed under caution at Hayes Police Station Kamran admitted dumping the waste, claiming that he intended to go back and get it.

Magistrates fined Kamran £1,066 and ordered him to pay the council’s full costs of £1,097.57. He was also ordered to pay a victim surcharge, making a total to pay of £2,265.57.

Gareth Williams, Buckinghamshire Council’s Cabinet Member for Climate Change and Environment said: “We proactively target those who choose to commit environmentally damaging offences such as this. The council provide excellent waste facilities, there really is no excuse for fly-tipping. Ignorance really wasn’t bliss here.”
