There were news reports last week that Brent Council has the highest number of fly tipping incidents in England! See here.

But wait, what about other local authorities?

Kilburn has the unenviable status of being at the intersection of the 3 Local Authorities with the highest number of reported fly-tipping incidents in England.

Local Authoritynumber of fly tipping incidents 2022/23
Brent Council34830
Camden Council31457
Westminster Council30737
Total 3 boroughs covering Kilburn97024
Total London422078

Enforcement following fly tipping incidents is rather poor in the 3 Councils. None of them are topping the national league table.

Brent Council2220 (6.4% of reports)33
Camden Council462 (1.5% of reports)0
Westminster Council2694 (8.8% of reports)3
Total 3 boroughs covering Kilburn5376 (5.5% of reports)36

So no wonder fly tipping is impacting on our neighbourhood so much. It seems that fly tippers are very rarely fined!
