.....zero. That's the number of prosecutions for fly-tipping in Birkenhead and Tranmere over the past three years. Hope that reassures you.
There has also been a big decline in the number of penalties/prosecutions for littering across Wirral over the same period.
The information comes in a recent message I received from Wirral Council which is copied below:
Thank you for your request for information shown below which has been passed to me as the Information Manager. Please see council’s response below which I trust you will find of use.
There have not been any successful prosecutions for fly tipping in Birkenhead & Tranmere in any of the last three financial years.
The Council does not hold littering figures by ward, but Borough wide figures are below:-.
