Lambeth Council

Fly-tipping, Freedom of Information and clarification


Last month we published the response we got to a Freedom of Information Act (FoI) request for Lambeth to send us the number of fines and summonses issued from October 2016 to the 19 of December last year. We had two goals in mind: firstly was to request the information as an ordinary resident, not as intrepid investigative journalists, partly to understand the experience you might have in querying your council. The other was to query the claim that Lambeth had issued 3,000 fines to fly-tippers in Streatham. We highly doubted that claim.
