Littering is a concern in Goffs Oak and around the borough of Broxbourne. Aside from being unsightly, enviro-crime, like littering and fly-tipping, has a significant negative impact on both the environment as well as our community as it can lead to the perception of an unsafe area, in turn, lead to more serious crime.
Our local councillor for Goffs Oak, Cllr. Mark Mills-Bishop, leads on fly-tipping for the Local Government Association and is supported in his efforts by a group of environmental enforcement officers, known as “The Field Force” actively work to deal with this type of low-level anti-social behaviour.
