08 February 2022
A three-month investigation found evidence that proved the bakery was dumping its rubbish on the street.
The court acknowledged the numerous attempts by the council, to contact Mr Nawabi, including opportunities to pay a fixed penalty notice, which the businessman ignored. Councillor Krupa Sheth, Cabinet Member for Environment at Brent Council, said,
“Mr Nawabi showed no interest in our attempts to contact him on many occasions. Fly tipping and dumping rubbish on our streets is unpleasant for residents and costly for the council to remove.
“In incidences like these, we always encourage business owners to communicate and engage with officers to find solutions before a court case occurs. We will not tolerant flagrant disregard of penalty notices from persistent offenders.
“This case serves as a warning to other business owners who refuse to dispose of their rubbish properly.”
