A landlord has been fined for dumping mattresses and furniture in a residential car park.
Breckland Council has issued a £445 Fixed Penalty Notice to a landlord who disposed of his renovation waste at a car park on St Martins Way, in Thetford.
This comes after the council’s enforcement team received a report from a member of the public that several mattresses, remains of flat-pack furniture and a camping chair had been fly tipped.
While there was no immediate evidence or witnesses, officers conducted door-to-door visits at surrounding properties and followed drag marks which appeared to be coming from a nearby address which was undergoing renovation.
The enforcement team contacted the landlord and conducted a telephone interview under caution.
