|On-The-Spot Fines For Littering|
Seven fines were issued in Chiswick this month
Hounslow Council has issued seven on-the-spot fines for littering in Chiswick since the start of the month. Five of these were issued to residents and two were issued to businesses.
The fines can be up to £80.
The Council had promised to tackle the problem of litter which was highlighted by local people and councillors as being a particular problem on Chiswick High Road.
In December Councillor Sue Sampson, cabinet member for economic development and communities, visited Chiswick to see a joint initiative between police and Hounslow Highways street scene crews looking for fly-tips and rubbish on the streets.
A total of 55 on-the-spot fines have been issued since 29 December 2014 across the borough as part of the Council's 'war on grime'.
