Hot Spot Areas To Be Targeted

Tuesday August 26 2014

MAPS with hot spot areas have been given to enforcement officers who are clamping down on litterers, illegal parkers and dog fouling.

Maria Broxup and James Lovatt - who are prowling Royston, Cudworth, Shafton, Grimethorpe, Carlton, Lundwood and Brierley - can now issue fixed penalty notices to people if they catch them in the act.

Coun Joe Hayward, chairman of the area council, said getting an enforcement team in had been a priority for some time.

"Two enforcement officers from environmental protection agency Kingdom started work last week," he added.

"They have been given maps with 'hot spot' areas that are being highlighted as a concern to us by residents."

I hope they visit the track thats for the school kids at Brierley. It runs by the side of Brierley Cemetery. Its sick making and not fit for children to walk down. In fact it should be renamed as Dog sh*t alley. Its so bad I now refuse to use it and I take the car round to the estate. This makes it a problem for folk living on the estate,but its better than a kid with a shoefull of stench which then migrates to the car. Please visit that lane officers.

Good idea because where I live in the town centre is always been used as a dumping ground. The council come and clean it up and within a matter of hours residents see it as an opportunity to throw their rubbish out on the street! The street got cleaned on Friday and yesterday a mattress was dumped!

Agree areas within close proximity to the town centre need attention as littering is rife. The scum need fining and made to participate in the clean up

Glad a private company are now doing enforcement, it will show the council how they have failed the people of Barnsley for years. Employing lazy wardens who spend more time on breaks than cracking the whip on those who ruin our villages and countryside!
