And they plan to introduce a fly-tipping hit squad to react quickly to clear fly-tipping hotspots.

Community activist Anne Cryer-Whitehead (pictured) has been campaigning for stronger measures because her estate, Fullers Slade, has several spots where people repeatedly illegally fly-tip rubbish ranging from beds to asbestos.

She said: “Fly-tipping blights estates and has a huge impact on local communities, not just on my estate of Fullers Slade, but all across MK.” Cabinet member Cllr Martin Gowans, said: “Fly-tipping is unacceptable. There is no excuse, and we are pledging to crack down on those who illegally dump their rubbish.”
