Ipswich landlord Gwyn Gittins to pay more than £4,000 after leaving waste outside Bramford Lane home
An Ipswich landlord has been ordered to pay more than £4,000 after not disposing of rubbish left in a back garden.
Gwyn Gittins twice breached community protection notices which applied to a house in the town's Bramford Lane.
These notices ordered that all waste in the back garden of the property be removed and disposed of in an appropriate manner.
They also ordered Mr Gittins to ensure that no more waste was left at the property.
Mr Gittins appeared at Suffolk Magistrates' Court on Thursday and was fined £300 for each offence.
He was also ordered to pay £3535.42, which covers legal costs, Counsel's fees and investigative costs, and a victim surcharge of £60.
Cllr Alasdair Ross, Ipswich Borough Council's portfolio holder for community protection, said: “Community Protection Notices are imposed to make the environment better for all in Ipswich. They need to be observed and when necessary we will take action against those who fail to do so. Clear up your waste.”
