After a Planning Sub Committee on Thursday night, Bromley Council have today announced plans to obtain a court injunction on land adjacent to the Waste 4 Fuel site on Cornwall Drive.
This follows the illegal dumping of one-metre high waste on to Green Belt land adjoining the Waste 4 Fuel site.
The injunction will run separately to the Environment Agency’s continued legal action against Waste 4 Fuel Ltd and the company’s former and current directors. They were brought before the High Court again just over a week ago, and will have to submit evidence before 19 April for a further hearing to take place shortly after Easter.
Bromley Council will now apply to the County Court for the injunction and, if successful, the waste will be removed and the Green Belt land restored to its original appearance.
Commenting on the news, Bob Neill MP said: "I am pleased to see Bromley Council are taking tough action to prevent Waste 4 Fuel from continuing to breach site boundaries and illegally dump waste on nearby protected land.
"The Council has maintained a watchful eye on Waste 4 Fuel from the start, and its decision to seek an injunction displays its firm commitment to using its powers to keep this company in check."
