Bravia Investments & Management Ltd has been fined for failure to comply with a Community Protection Notice issued earlier this year by the Council.
The notice was served on Bravia Investments & Management Ltd on 19th April 2017 by the Environmental Health service and the company was given until 2nd May 2017 to clear up the mess at the Former Café Spice premises in Shirebrook.
There have been ongoing problems within Shirebrook with littering, fly tipping and the condition/upkeep of premises which is having a detrimental impact on the local community.
So when the owner of the properties, failed to clear all litter and refuse from the area at 56 – 58 Patchwork Row in Shirebrook, we took them to court.
The defendant company did not attend or contact the court so on the 16th November 2017 after hearing the evidence, the magistrates found the defendant guilty and proceeded to serve the sentence.
Bravia Investments & Management Ltd was fined £1,000, ordered to pay £700 in costs and £155 compensation (which was to cover the costs incurred for removing the waste).
Councillor Brian Murray-Carr, portfolio holder for Community Safety and Street Services said, “The Council spends thousands of pounds each year keeping the environment clean and we are using new anti social behaviour powers to ensure landowners take responsibility for their own land”
