Construction waste adding to Brighton & Hove flooding problems

Brighton and Hove’s council are asking builders, tradespeople, and residents doing home improvements not to dump building waste down the city’s drains and gullies.

The council Highways Teams have seen an increase in the amount of cement, concrete, plaster and other construction materials in drains, most recently in Matlock Road, Tivoli Road and Poplar Avenue.

A spokesperson for the council said “This has contributed to blocked drains and gullies resulting in flooded roads and pavements.

Anyone found to be disposing of commercial waste illegally could be issued with a Fixed Penalty Notice of £400 and or face legal prosecution. We may also seek to recover the cost of the damage caused.

Residents can report any incidents of disposing commercial waste illegally to our fly tipping hotline, 01273 295063 which is operational between the hours of 9am and 5pm, Monday to Friday. A voicemail function is available outside of these times.”
