He was convicted of fly tipping across Bexley and Kent

Walter ‘Wally’ Marney of Ellenborough Road, Sidcup was ordered to pay £15,050 after he was convicted of fly-tipping offences across Bexley and Kent.

Bexley borough worked with Kent County Council, alongside Dartford Borough Council, Gravesham Borough Council, Sevenoaks District Council and Medway Council, to assure the conviction of Marney last week.

The offence in Bexley, which took place in May 2014, involved the dumping of waste including a toilet, onto Parsonage Lane, Sidcup.

Flytipping offences across seven different charges involved the dumping of household waste including fridge freezers, garden waste, small electrical items, building materials and tyres across Kent.

On September 17 Marney was ordered to pay £1,500 for each offence, a victim surcharge of £120 on top of £4,430 in overall costs.

Marney’s first monthly payment of £500 will be due within 28 days of the court’s conviction.

Cllr Peter Craske, Bexley’s Cabinet Member for Community Safety, Environment and Leisure said: “I am glad to know that such a prolific fly-tipper has been brought to justice. I am appalled that a Bexley resident has not only blighted our borough in this way, but offended across Kent too.”

The London Borough of Bexley was awarded £349.92 of the costs.
