An untidy resident has been fined more than £1,000 for keeping the garden at her home in Neasden filled with rubbish.
Brent Council took action against Regina Sally Fernandes, of Ballogie Avenue, following complaints about the state of the land surrounding her house.
Willesden Magistrates’ Court ordered her to pay a total of £1123.50 for the large amount of waste on her land.
Cllr Eleanor Southwood, Brent Council’s cabinet member for the environment, said: “It’s completely unacceptable when neighbours do not clear up large amounts of waste outside their properties. It brings down the appearance of the area and everyone suffers.”
Dennis Lewis, enviro-crime manager of Brent Council, added: “We will investigate complaints of untidy land, littering or illegally dumped rubbish and will take all necessary measures to investigate the incidents and will not hesitate to prosecute the offenders.”
