Just ask Roy Farnham, a 67 year old scout leader, who recently made the heinous mistake of using his initiative and did something proactive without first asking the council.
Mr Farnham's scout hut (First Lilliput Sea Scouts in Poole) is at the end of a potholed ridden lane/bridle-way.
Fearing that someone might injure themselves if they fell into a pothole, Mr Farnham took it upon himself to fill in the (5ft wide - 18 inches deep) holes with hard-core.
Can you guess what happened next children?
Yes, that's right, Poole council threatened him with a fine for fly tipping!
Was that not a tad "aggressive" and "jobsworthy" of them to use the fly tipping law against him? The council claim that the hard-core is not the correct substance to use, then why not give him the correct substance?
For good measure they also told him that if anyone fell over on his hard-core, then he faced the risk of being sued.
Will the council repair the bridal-way then?
It would cost £150K, and they are under no legal obligation to repair bridal-ways!
Now, the council is of course correct that if someone fell over on Mr Farnham's repairs (given how we are so happy to sue each other these days) he does indeed face the risk of being sued.
However, if they won't repair it and they won't let Mr Farnham repair it or give him the correct filing to make the repairs, what happens next?
Poole council, well deserving Prats of The Week!
