North Yorkshire County Council Scrutiny of Health Committee refer Friarage decision to an independent panel
Landowners and farmers in Yorkshire are calling for tougher action against fly-tippers who are blighting the countryside and threatening the safety of livestock.
Farmers say they often see an increase in the amount of waste left in the countryside at this time of year with rogue 'DIYers' and contractors dumping old material and rubbish instead of paying to take it to a tip:
Staff at a countryside estate in North Yorkshire cleared 20 bags of discarded rubbish in one morning on a stretch of road alongside their nature reserve.
The Escrick Park Estate held a 'Tidy Day' to get rid of waste fly-tipped around Skipworth Common.
The CLA says fly-tipping incidents hit a peak at this time of year as it's the traditional time for DIY, gardening and spring cleaning and most recycling centres have limitations on the amount of waste that can be dumped free of charge.
North Yorkshire Police have confirmed that the body found in the River Ouse near Skeldergate Bridge yesterday has been identified as missing 18-year-old, Tyler Pearson
The soldier was last seen entering the River Ouse in the early hours of Thursday 3 April 2014.
Julia Mulligan, Police and Crime Commissioner for North Yorkshire, said:
“My heart goes out to Tyler’s family, and I know the police will offer all the help and support the family need at this very difficult time.
“The recent spate of fatalities highlights the importance of staying safe near York’s rivers, particularly when alcohol has been consumed. Last month’s river safety summit concluded that the priority needs to be on prevention as well as response.
"Work is currently underway with groups across York and families of recent river victims to make some short films to highlight the dangers of the river. In the longer term we will devise a sustained and powerful campaign to help prevent more lives being needlessly cut short.
"In addition to this, I am keen to facilitate vulnerability training, so those working in York’s night-time economy know who they can go to and what they can do to help keep vulnerable people safe."
– Dorothy Fairburn, CLA North Regional Director
"Fly-tipping happens all year round but it hits a peak at this time of year.
"CLA members frequently have to dispose of anything from black sacks to furniture, televisions, garden waste and piles of rubble.
"The CLA's action plan to tackle environmental crime calls for the Government to ensure local authorities can accept fly-tipped waste without charge to landowners as well as an end to the prosecution of landowners who have waste dumped on their land and have to pay to remove it."
A group which represents landowners in North Yorkshire says it's preparing for a rise in cases of fly-tipping in the region over the Easter holiday.
The CLA is calling for new rules to tackle the problem, as it says too many people have to pay to get rid of rubbish dumped on their land. It's also lobbying the government for a new scheme which will allow dumped waste to be taken to the tip free of charge.
