Recently, a large housing association were served with a warning from our team to tidy up their hoardings on a site on Malago Road, Bedminster. The hoardings were looking dilapidated and had attracted a large amount of graffiti. The housing association were just about to replace the hoardings so the warning arrived at the right time. 🖌🧼

Local residents living on a quiet street situated off Park Street were blighted by bins large and small that were permanently obstructing the pavement. These bins had been left in the residential area by businesses operating on Park Street. Our Team were approached by residents to help resolve this issue as the problem escalated, especially during lockdown as accumulating rubbish smelt unpleasant and attracted flies.

Each bin was issued with a notice giving the owner 7 days in which to remove their bin off the pavement and to place it on their own private land. If they were unable to accommodate their bin, they had to make alternative arrangements to change their current collection service to a daily bag collection directly outside the front of their business.

The action taken by the team resulted in those unwilling to co-operate having their bins confiscated and as a result of the action taken over £600 pounds in Fines for non-compliance were issued.

Residents and visitors are happy with the outcome and are freely able to use the pavement again without hindrance.

A taxi driver had his private hire and hackney carriage licences suspended yesterday after appearing before the council’s Public Safety Protection Committee where a report from NET officers was considered. The driver had been stopped by Taxi Compliance Officer ,PC Quinton, who found that he had been plying for hire using his private hire vehicle. This is a breach of his licence and invalidates his insurance. In another instance this week PC Quinton was accompanying a NET officer to obtain ID details in regards to sale of cars on the highway from a house in Bishopsworth, but on their way, they spotted a Private Hire Vehicle that was showing a defective boot and a licence plate that was out of date. A vehicle inspection notice was issued, the taxi driver given some advice and the vehicle was de-licensed until it is demonstrated to be fit and proper to use again

Great work by our Community Payback team at a former garage site in Lockleaze this weekend, following concerns raised by a local councillor. As the before and after photos below show, a great deal of overgrowth has been cleared and will now be collected. Overgrowth can encourage littering as well as being an eyesore, so this kind of clearance makes a big difference 🍃✄

Another £100 littering fine has been issue to a South Bristol resident ,this time as a result of prompt action by a Bristol City council employee. On a walk at the weekend, the member of staff reported littering by the dog bin in Willmott Park Hartcliffe and included photos of the waste in her report which identified the offender’s name and address. The report was followed up by one of our NET officers and the offender admitted the littering offence and was issued with a £100 fixed penalty fine which was paid promptly. NET would like to thank that member of staff for taking time to report this to the team

A Stockwood resident has been fined £100 for littering when he left some cardboard waste in Selden Road, Stockwood. Bristol.

Most FPNs for littering are given to people who are actually spotted doing it but in this instance NET recovered details from the waste that led to an address in Andover Road and ultimately to the person who deposited the cardboard.

An expensive alternative to using recycling services!

Neighbourhood Enforcement Officers were out till late at the week end checking how pubs, bars, restaurants and take- aways were complying with the new Covid restrictions.

Officers visited premises on the Gloucester Road, Whiteladies Road, Park Street and the City Centre. We were pleased to see that pubs and bars were universally observing the 10pm curfew and that, since contact was made last week, no street traders were seen operating after 10pm and late night stores had better security and queue management.

Unfortunately we had to speak to a lot of takeaways still serving after 10pm and they will face fines and possible closure if this continues. The city council emergency control centre and the City Centre BID marshals are helping to monitor Covid compliance

Bristol City Council has to renew Public Space Protection Orders (PSPOs) every 3yrs.

The current Dog Control PSPO covers:

🐕 Dog Fouling

🐕 Dogs on Leads (except in exempt areas such as parks)

🐕 Dog Exclusion Zones

We’re asking #Bristol residents for their views on whether dog control orders should be maintained to help tackle anti-social behaviour in the city.

The current Public Space Protection Order (PSPO) has been shown to be effective in dealing with dog-related nuisance in the city by providing us with powers to fine or prosecute dog owners who do not follow the rules set out in the PSPO.

A combination of CCTV footage and teamwork from residents, local councillors, and our team secured a good result in Stockwood recently.

A resident of Hanford Court was captured on CCTV depositing waste at several locations, including into a brook that running through the rear of the estate. Following reports from residents and the Local Councillor, a witness statement was obtained and further enquiries revealed a suspect at a nearby address. The resident admitted to the offence and agreed to pay a £400 fine for fly-tipping.

Our team have recently received numerous complaints about noise from cockerels, so please consider for the following advice from our officers...
🐔 If you keep chickens, please be aware that cockerels are not essential in the production of eggs and that in residential areas, cockerels can be a source of frustration and distress for neighbours.
🐔 If you are having problems with noise from a neighbour’s cockerel, we recommend reaching out to them before contacting us as many issues can be resolved this way; and
🐔 If you do have cockerels, please try and keep them house in a darkened coup during unsociable hours: this should keep crowing to a minimum.

As well as individuals, our officers often have to tackle larger companies as they work to keep our safe, clean and green.

On a recent site patrol, our officer Chris found a very large fly tip on the grass verge on St Luke’s Road, in Totterdown. It was clear that the tip had come from a house being refurbished nearby, which upon further enquiry was confirmed to belong to a large housing association. The officer issued the housing association with a fly-tipping warning and they confirmed the refurbishment work had been sub-contracted out. The association were really disappointed to hear about the fly tipping at one of their properties and asked the sub-contractor to admit liability straight away. They also made sure the fly tip was cleared promptly. The sub-contractors have been issued with a £400 fixed penalty notice for fly tipping, which they could have avoided if they used a skip. The housing association were grateful to Chris for bringing this to their attention, as they had assumed the sub-contractors were clearing the site each day.

Our officers often remind residents about the Council’s bulky goods collection service, which can have a very positive impact on the appearance of a neighbourhood. We recently received complaints about a fridge freezer being stored in the front garden of a house in Stockwood. Our team served the household with a warning to remove the fridge freezer, and the resident was advised to use our bulky waste service to collect it. The household did as advised and the garden now looks much better. You can arrange for a bulky waste collection, as well as view a list of charitable organisations which collect certain items, here: https://www.bristol.gov.uk/bins-recycling/bulky-household-item-collection

Our team would like to thank residents in Hartcliffe who took a stand against fly tipping in their road. A resident recently reported seeing mattresses and household rubbish being dumped over fencing by the driver of a Transit van. The owner of the van was identified via the DVLA and the driver was issued with a £400 fine. This was paid promptly to avoid any further action. Community support is really helpful in making sure our team can catch and take action against fly-tippers. You can report fly-tipping here https://www.bristol.gov.uk/streets-travel/report-flytipping

Our team recently secured a good result in a noise complaint case that has been ongoing from December 2019. Neighbours had reported periods of loud music lasting for up to 12 hours at a time. The residents of the address in questions were issued with a warning and then a Noise Abatement Notice, but did not comply. A seizure was carried out in February, where items were removed from the address to ensure compliance with the Abatement Notice. Unfortunately, the resident acquired new equipment and proceeded to continue with the playing of loud music. A second warrant was obtained in July and a further seizure carried out and all items that enabled the playing of amplified music were removed. A court ruling last week held that the resident must forfeit all seized goods and pay a total of around £5250 in costs and fines.

Our team would like to thank residents at Barnstaple Court in Knowle, who recently reported a van fly tipping rubble and brickwork into their bins. A number of statements were taken and the vehicle owners were identified via our access to the DVLA database. One of the residents told us “We heard some noise outside and we went out to see a white van unloading bricks into our communal bins.“ The owners of the vehicle were a local removal company who were issued with a £400 fine and agreed to pay it to avoid prosecution. Our officer Chris who dealt with the case said “It’s great to see local residents coming forward to help us tackle fly tipping across the City.”

Public reporting is invaluable for helping our work and being able to successfully fine fly-tippers. Recently, a concerned citizen in BS5 reported to us that they had seen a local resident dump a single divan mattress in the middle of the night

The reporter was provided a statement of what they had seen, so our officers were able to contact the fly-tipper. They fully admitted depositing the mattress on the highway and were issued with a £400 fine, which was paid immediately.

If you see fly-tippers spoiling your neighbourhood, please report it to us https://www.bristol.gov.uk/streets-travel/report-flytipping

Waste carriers, brokers and dealers

The Environment Agency has recently issued a warning that Facebook 'Buy and Sell' pages are being used by rogue traders advertising waste clearance and disposal. These traders often have no waste carriers license and dispose of waste at unauthorised sites. Importantly, the owner of the waste is responsible for ensuring its correct disposal: therefore, if you use an unlicensed waste carrier and dumped waste is traced back to you, you could face a fine.

The EA said: "Registered waste carriers in the South West have become concerned about the number of ‘man and van’ adverts and self-promotion on Facebook and other social media platforms offering to take away people’s rubbish. If these traders don’t have a waste carriers’ licence, there is no guarantee rubbish will go to an authorised site. Instead, it could end up dumped on the side of the road or burned in a field, causing environmental damage. And the person who hired the unregistered trader could face a criminal charge"

These sorts of scam have increased as access to recycling centres has been limited and so please be especially cautious when arranging waste disposal. You can check credentials easily online here: https://environment.data.gov.uk/public-register/view/search-waste-carriers-brokers

People or businesses who transport, buy, sell or dispose of waste, or arrange for someone else to do so, must be registered.

Are you having a laugh Have you learnt nothing from the last 3 months Life is precious and cram it full of what you want to do. I hope this is not a real post if it is you should be ashamed of yourself
PLEASE get some public toilets open on the harbourside asap !
Hi, what are the necessary conditions for confiscating audio equipment? Do officers need to witness the noise coming from them? We frequently see your posts about confiscating speakers and yet we are really struggling to activate confiscation from a neighbouring property which has disrupted us for years now. Thanks.
An absolute joke!! I've counted 16 taxis parked up on Broad Quay tonight & 5 taxis parked on YOUR new "Super" taxi rank. How does it feel to know that Bristol taxi drivers are sticking two fingers up at you, Parking services, Bristol city council and the police? #laughingstock How are we bus drivers supposed to pick up and drop off safely? Maybe we should start parking on taxi ranks but wait! We can't, we would be fined!! #taxisabovethelaw #taxisimmunity
I see that the taxi drivers in Bristol city centre have reverted back to their old ways, blocking bus stops, illegal left/right turns into Colston Ave & Broad Quay. Also parking outside Urban Tiger with the taxi at the rear sticking their back end out making it hard for buses to pass
We are tired to report the street issue to bs3 4dg mill lane. Kids are playing with rubbish on the street. Can you please take action. Thanks
I was just wondering will you be enforcing the new "Super" Taxi rank? And also the new enforcement cameras on Colston Ave, considering taxis are registered to use bus lanes will these new cameras pick up the taxis ignoring the new road layout and enforcement?
I'm a bus driver & I'm getting very angry and fed up with taxi drivers hijacking all the stops on the centre, the worst one being on Colston Ave outside the army recruiting office. Friday and Saturday nights are the worst, several times I've been unable to pick up or drop off passengers on this stop because its full of taxi's and the purpose built taxi rank sits empty! I've emailed BCC enforcement team but very little if at all is getting done? The first rule of bus driving is passenger safety & comfort, and I firmly work by that rule. I thoroughly enjoy my job and take pride in being a professional driver, and the one thing I hate the most is failing my passengers by not being able to offer them a decent service. Also in regards to taxis turning left into Colston Ave/Broad Quay. The sign from Electricity House very clearly states that it is ONLY for buses & cycles, however taxis frequently turn left here to cut through Broad Quay and very often turn left into Baldwin St which as far as I am aware is illegal, but yet no enforcement, there are ANPR cameras installed at both ends but because the taxis are registered no fines are issued. So my question is what if anything is being done about the blatant law breaking by some Bristol taxi drivers?
I’ve been told to post this here

I don,t want to waste anyone's time and I,m only an ocassional visitor to Bristol from Cheltenham to busk but "Bristol Busking Guidelines" are wrong to to include ASB legislation.Busking is an "unregulated activity" and lawfull and is not relevant to ASB legislation.Home Office guidelines have repeatedly stated that ASB legislation should not be used to stop busking.
Hey i have spent the whole day emailing and calling your office, i have spent a total of 3.5 hours on hold. Please i implore you provide a means to get hold of you. We have received letters re fly tipping even though we have paid the related fixed penalty notice. Please stop harassing us this is beginning to cause mental health instabilities within the household due to the Constance and negligence of your unprofessional behavior. please correspond asap.
