Generous neighbour


Thought I’d have a walk through a spinney we own which backs on to some very expensive houses, its fenced off for our cattle so don't really go in there very often, kindly neighbour obviously thought our trees needed some compost, plan to have a word tomorrow and give them two weeks to clear it, cant get in with a machine to lift it back over unless i hired a mini digger, can I report them to anyone if they refuse

Legally its fly tipping. Unlawful disposal of waste. But of course then its your responsibility to dispose of it :scratchhead: And I doubt the fly tipping officer in your local council would do anything, there being no evidence that the neighbour did it, not that would stand up in court anyway.

Chucking it back over the fence would be my first port of call.

Of course to be fair to the neighbours, if they're the expensive house brigade they may have paid some landscape gardener types to do the work on the garden and it was they who chucked it over the fence, the house owner might be oblivious and mortified if it was pointed out. They might even have paid extra for 'disposal of material'. So perhaps a brief visit might be in order to find out whether they were aware and give them the opportunity to rectify before invoking the 'Back over it goes!' option.


East Sussex.
Had the same sort of thing locally in the copse alongside a local green lane by the gardener of an adjacent house.
Fly tipping fella from the council had a word with the house owner over the phone and the problem was sorted.
Trouble is. Next will be old washing machines and other carp landing.
Don't fancy the chances of wild woodland edge flora in the above example next spring.
I mean.
Its not as if the carp is needed for pheasant cover?

Written by Charlotte Cunningham

AHDB has issued a yellow rust watch list to help flag winter wheat varieties most likely to perform out of line with the disease ratings published in the Recommended Lists. Charlotte Cunningham reports. The watch list, which orders varieties based on yellow rust levels from the three worst RL trials (for each variety), can help identify those most likely to benefit from closer monitoring, says the levy board. It follows the development of a new rating calculation approach that better reflects the diverse and dynamic nature of the UK’s rust populations, announced at the launch of the online edition of the RL 2021/22 in Dec.
