Fly Tipping – A miserable and nasty habit from some of the lowest people in our society who think it is ok to dump their (or waste they have been paid to take away) in laybys or even in the middle of the road.

Sadly this is the type of criminal activity that is usually the tip of the iceberg of other illegal activities and tax evasion from the same people. Personally I would lock them up when caught and the country would be a much cleaner, safer and respectful place.
With cars having dashcams and everyone carrying at least one device able to take pictures, any information that leads to the prosecution of any fly tipper will be gratefully appreciated – And I will give them £250 from my own pocket.
Sadly in this wet society putting cameras up to catch them is difficult as it invades privacy.
From the local resident: “So sections of the great British public continue to demonstrate utter contempt for everyone else. This was blocking Pyle Lane at 17:00 today. I wonder how they would have felt had they been trying to rush a loved one to hospital!!! Honestly it beggars belief”
You will probably recall a period about 5 years ago when we received a barrage of planning applications for land across Horndean, Clanfield, Lovedean, Blendworth and surrounding areas. We were able to successfully navigate a way through this and direct our local needs to Land East of Horndean (about which I will post an update shortly).
Well, we are required to update our local plan every 5 years so it is ‘up to date’ which means we can identify where development takes place (inside our Settlement Policy Boundary). if we allow this to lapse, or can not generate sufficient building permissions then developers are allowed to submit applications for land that is not in the local plan provided it is a ‘Sustainable’ development – a topic for another day…
Every year we do a ‘Call for Sites’ which is asking land owners to submit details of land they would be interested to develop, and these are sifted. Sites of special scientific interest, sites in flood plains, sites with harmful visual impact are several other categories are removed. the short list is then filtered and with input from parish councils, neighbourhood plan groups, residents associations and individual commenters are filtered further to get the final list.
You can register on the EHDC Website for updates on the local plan and how to make your own representation.
Please note that The South Downs National Park has its own local plan and this applies to areas outside of the park.

"The Budget should be balanced, the Treasury should be refilled, public debt should be reduced, the arrogance of officialdom should be tempered and controlled, and the assistance to foreign lands should be curtailed, lest Rome will become bankrupt. People must again learn to work instead of living on public assistance." - Cicero, 55 BC
