After much hard work by heads of local businesses in the Bradford area, it is refreshing to see that the right course of action is being followed

The reaction follows a report in the Telegraph and Argus detailing a collaborative effort between Bradford Council and Bower Green Ltd to tackle the area’s growing problem with fly tipping and littering.

Following a series of complaints lodged at the council by Bower Green Ltd’s CEO, Ian Pattison, plans have been unveiled to install a CCTV camera in an area that has become something of a dumping hotspot in recent months.

Pattison has threatened to relocate his business away from Bradford if his calls for action continue to be ignored.
Bower Green Ltd, a warehousing and distribution company based just outside of Bradford City Centre, have helped advise the council where the CCTV camera would be most effective in an effort to stem the tide of unwanted rubbish near their premises. Mr. Pattison has said that he was ashamed to say the company was based in Bradford, such is the extent of the problem.

The calls for the implementation of a deterrent system have been substantiated by David Gisbourne, the head of Haworth Scouring Company, who list Bower Green as one of their neighbours. With business rates in excess of £250,000, the fact that international clients are faced with abandoned mattresses and other illegally dumped items is deemed by the business leaders as unacceptable.

A spokesperson for AlertSystems, experts in business security systems, has released a statement following the issue. “After much hard work by heads of local businesses in the Bradford area, it is refreshing to see that the right course of action is being followed to curtail the recent spate of fly-tipping.

“Through careful collaboration between the local council and the businesses, the installation of a CCTV camera is the only realistic solution in order to reduce such incidents. The illegal dumping of rubbish is a very real problem that faces many communities across the country and one that is particularly prevalent for companies who operate in largely industrial areas.

“While the problem is extremely difficult to police, Bower Green Ltd. and Bradford City Council’s efforts to provide the area with an external deterrent system are wholly appropriate and if carried out correctly should prove successful in the long run.”
