Bromley businessman ordered to pay over £1,000 after fly-tipping waste in Beckenham
A Bromley businessman has been ordered to pay £1,312 after pleading guilty to fly-tipping waste roofing materials in Beckenham.
Nicholas Rogers, 41, of Bradford Close, pleaded guilty to one charge of fly-tipping at Bromley Magistrates' Court.
This followed an investigation by Bromley Council into multiple large dumps of waste roofing materials on a secluded unmade section of Downsbridge Road, Beckenham.
Executive Councillor Colin Smith said: "Dumping waste is never acceptable and such criminal behaviour will not be tolerated in our borough.
“Fly-tipping is dangerous, harmful and expensive to deal with. Where is there evidence available, we will not hesitate to prosecute and this latest prosecution should serve as a warning to others that they too will face prosecution."
Mr Rogers was fined £100 plus £20 victim surcharge and ordered to pay costs of £1,192 to the London Borough of Bromley.
