Lambeth Council's incompetence has led to disatrous flytipping, according to residents on Clive Rd, Gipsy Hill ward.
A dilapidated house was left undeveloped, allegedly becuase of the council's slowness in processing a planning application.
Tons of rubbish was subsequently dumped on the site, spilling onto the pavement and posing potential safety risks. The rubbish was higher than an adult. The Labour-controlled council promised tough action in the past against flytipping when it cut waste collection services in the area, but has failed to keep its promise.
Local Conservative GLA candidate Michael Mitchell challenged the council on this matter. We can reveal that that the planning application has at last been approved, and some of the rubbish has been moved.
Michael said: "The Labour Council has been slow to act, and the residents have paid the price for this failure."
