Repression against incivility and waste dumped on Sutton-in-Ashfield Street
A council is cracking down on anti-social behavior and huge amounts of litter left on a street in Nottinghamshire. Ashfield District Council said Outram Street in Sutton-in-Ashfield had become an “area of interest” for them after a number of reported incidents.
Outram Street, a busy shopping street, has a number of homes and businesses and recently had CCTV installed to try to deter fly tipping. Council officials say their teams have been working “tirelessly” to tackle issues of anti-social behavior and try to clean up the street.
Ashfield District Council said in a statement: “The Community Safety Team has worked with businesses and residents on Outram Street to tackle litter issues and anti-social behaviour. The service road, off Outram Street in Sutton, has become an area of focus, seeing lots of excess litter making the road unsightly and attracting anti-social behavior to the area.

“The team have worked tirelessly to improve the area and provide sustainable waste reduction and bin storage solutions to local businesses and residents. The area has also benefited from additional CCTV in the area which will be used to support the fight against illegal dumping and anti-social behavior, as well as reassure and improve the feeling of security in the area.
“In April, Community Protection Officers undertook eight commercial waste inspections, issued four Community Protection Warnings, one Community Protection Notice and two Pest Damage Prevention under the 1949 Act to resolve the issues. We will continue to work with residents to help manage waste and comply with the notices served.”
