EIGHT hotspots for rubbish being strewn across Woodley have been named as the council has listed the worst areas for fly-tipping.

Woodley Town Council were asked to identify areas that were regularly plagued by fly-tipping and sent the list to Wokingham Borough Council.

It listed the area around the bin at the footpath end of Nightingale Road, along the footpath at the end of Nightingale Road, in the vicinity of Tesco Express in Hurricane Way, and around the Highwood area.

The council also identified Bideford Close – adjacent to 78-94 Hazel Drive, the car park next to the Southlake supermarket, the entrance near to the children’s play area off Kingfisher Drive, and the garage area off Rickman Close.

The list was published in a council agenda for the Planning and Community Committee held on Tuesday.

In the agenda it also suggested that 'fly-tipping could be a result of the waste management policy', which charges users for leaving certain types of waste at local tip sites.

As a result the council also hope to seek advice from community scheme Countryside Watch, which works to bring down rural crime, and hope to gain a better understanding of how to help tackle fly-tipping.
