I was speaking to someone I know yesterday who was rather struck by the hypocrisy of Norfolk County Council. Having read on Norfolk County Council's website about issues to do with fly-tipping, she contacted Norfolk County highways about a load of rubble that had been dumped on her land. Norfolk County Council were not too impressed or happy to be bothered with a phone call about fly-tipping and insisted she phone up Broadland District Council who are responsible for flytipping, and as Norfolk County Council were keen to add "the perpetrators could be fined".
"Oh, you're happy to be fined are you ?" replied the lady
"Why should we be paying it ?" replied Norfolk County Council ?
"Well the rubble was dumped there by Norfolk County Highways workmen about three months ago", she added.
"It's funny" , said the lady " Suddenly they were not so keen for me to phone Broadland and they insisted they would find someone who would clean up the mess for me".
Now it is good that Norfolk County Council put right their mess, but it's a shame that councils don't all lead by example.
