Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
Could you please explain your situation a little more?
Just to be clear, do you accept it is not Council land?
If it is not their land there is no obligation on them to clean it, even if it is a public right of way.
That obligation would only apply if it was their land or it was adopted, but that does not appear to be the case here.
As such there is no right for them to cleanse it, but I will outline the process for you to take it further, although I fear you may not be successful.
You should first write to the Chief Officer's office and make a formal complaint. That Office will investigate what you have to say and report back to you.Then and only then can you complain to the Local Government Ombudsman. They offer a free, independent service and can investigate your complaint at: www.lgo.org.uk
That may resolve the issue for you.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
Yes Chief Officer at the Council.
Yes they can remove the bins - its not their land!Does that clarify?
If this answers your question could I invite you rate my answer 3, 4 or 5 starts before you leave today.
