Conducting a review of fly tipping will not of itself have any implications for the quality of life issues set out above. However, it is intended that any outcomes of the review should have a positive impact across all or most of the quality of life indicators.

E-Government implications:

The review will consider how E-Government initiatives could contribute to addressing the problems of fly tipping.

Resource and legal implications:

There are no direct resource and legal implications associated with this report other than the officer time involved in the review which can be contained within approved budgets. Details of the existing legal framework on fly tipping were reported at the Committee’s meeting on 20th January 2004. The cost and any legal implications that emerge from the review will be included as part of the final report.

The review process

2. A number of organisations with an interest in fly tipping have been invited to attend the meeting to make a presentation to the Committee. Each organisation will be allocated fifteen minutes to present their case after which members of the Committee may ask questions. 3. The prime purpose of the process is to enable the Committee to gather information in an open and public forum. The Committee will not be expected to reach its conclusions on the review at the meeting but a report summarising the evidence will be prepared and presented to a future meeting of the Committee. At that meeting the Committee would consider whether it has received sufficient evidence and if so formulate any recommendations it might wish to make to the Executive. Following this a further report would be prepared for the next meeting as the Committee’s final report and recommendations on the subject of fly tipping.

4. A running order of the organisations that will be addressing the Committee is attached as an Annexe to this report. Other written evidence received in advance of the meeting will be sent to members separately.
