With Havering councillors set to vote on measures to fight fly-tipping in the borough at a meeting later tonight, we’re asking you what you think the best way to deal with the problem is.

The council’s highways committee will vote on plans to close a junction of Sunnings Lane in Upminster and a stretch of road in Little Gerpins Lane, Rainham that have both frequently been targeted by fly-tippers.

A three-week public consultation on the plans closed on August 4, with one Upminster resident telling the council: “We have wanted this for years.”

However, the plans for Little Gerpins Lane have been met by a more mixed response, with the majority of respondents feeling other nearby lanes will simply become victims of greater amounts of fly-tipping.

A full report of tonight’s meeting will be available on our website tomorrow and in this Friday’s paper.
