DUMPING mattresses, broken furniture and building materials resulted in a Calmore flytipper being handed a suspended prison sentence when he appeared before magistrates.

Kenneth Dibden (55), of Salisbury Road, flytipped plaster board, tiles, concrete, bricks and bathroom furniture at Tanners Lane in West Wellow and sites in Romsey, including the Abbey Park Industrial Estate and Luzborough Lane, between February and March 2021.

Dibden admitted leaving the waste at Abbey Park without a permit, and transporting the waste while not being a registered carrier.

As well as these, the defendant had reversed not-guilty pleas to two more pairs of the same charges relating to the offences committed in Tanners and Luzborough lane.

He had also changed his plea to guilty having previously denied a charge of failing without reasonable excuse to comply with the Environment Act 1995 in relation to the Luzborough Lane offence.

The Southampton Bench ruled custody was an appropriate sentence as the flytipping offences brought “environmental issues and are detrimental to the community and to society in general”.

However, the 18-week jail term was suspended for 18 months, with a supervision period requiring Dibden undergo rehabilitation activity.

The defendant was also ordered to pay £1,628 in court charges.
