Online service helping to pinpoint flytippers

A new online service will allow people to report flytipping in the Cotswolds.

The online form created by Cotswold District Council will allow users to pinpoint the flytipping on an interactive map, meaning they do not have to try to describe the location or look up a postcode.

As well as making it easier for the council to locate, with reported cases visible on the site it means less duplication and allow for a quicker investigation and clean-up.

Customer services will also be able to provide more detailed case information following reports.

Councillor Andrew Doherty, cabinet member for waste, recycling and the environment, said: "Flytipping is a crime as well as a blight on the environment which we take very seriously.

"These improvements make it easier for residents to report flytipping, ensuring it is possible to clean up flytraps more effectively and pursue offenders more quickly."

You can report flytipping at community.cotswold.gov.uk/s/fly-tip
