“Selfish actions” costing ratepayers – Cllr Jamieson on fly-tipping in Broughshane

Broughshane play park

Braid Councillor Christopher Jamieson (TUV) has appealed for information after an incident of fly-tipping in Broughshane.

The incident happened this week in the car park area of the village's play park. Mr Jamieson described those responsible as selfish and highlighted the cleanup costs to local ratepayers.

Councillor Christopher Jamieson said:

“I was annoyed to learn that fly tipping had occurred in Broughshane in the car park off Knockan road.

"While this car park is used annually for an Eleventh Night bonfire, the fly tipping is unconnected to the annual celebrations and in fact occurred well after the bonfire had been lit.

“It is important to note that this is the overflow car park for the community centre which is needed at the moment due to the Super Cup.

“Having brought the matter to the attention of council officials, I am pleased that they have agreed to action the matter and have the area cleaned up. It is important, however, to note that such selfish actions result in a cost to the public purse and this cleanup is frankly something we can do without during a cost of living crisis when everyone is feeling the squeeze.

"If anyone has information about the fly tipping I would urge them to bring it to the attention of the police as this is a matter which is obviously something for them to deal with.”
