At least a good proportion of the fly-tipping is provably and unquestionably theirs, ie knackered hubcaps and car parts and take-aways right outside the shop.

They also currently use all of that end of Larkbere Road for tyre storage: on the pavement, outside the lock-up next to someone's house, and underneath their van. This cannot be legal.
Hey, I’ve send another reminder to the council and I’ll keep on emailing them until this is sorted. It’s not just illegal it’s disrespectful and I expect that business is run by bullies. They need a reality check

If they are repairing cars in the street (and it’s not an emergency) it is an offence under s.54(1) of the Metropolitan Police Act 1839.

bensonby, with the best will in the world, surely after this length of time, the trick would be to persuade the powers that be that they should actually do something to enforce rules already in place?

No idea. I can’t say I’m particularly aware of the issue. I was merely pointing out a piece of relatively obscure legislation that I’m not sure many police officers would be aware of that the premises may be guilty of that could be brought to the attention of the neighbourhood police.

Thank you. It might be useful grist to the mill if there is a tenable police/criminal aspect that could bypass council reticence.

Discrete photography of work on public highway may be a useful tool when you find a friendly bobby.
