Canterbury City Council is appealing for information following a number of air spill incidents in Herne Bay. The incidents took place outside Elizabeth Court in Queen Street.
A CCTV camera was deployed in the area by Kent County Council between March 29 and April 27 after persistent instances of litter being dumped on the pavement. Five different people were captured in the footage leaving rubbish on the pavement next to the bin storage area at Elizabeth Court.
One of Canterbury City Council’s housing officers has already identified one of the people, and action is being taken against them. However, more information is needed on the other four people captured on CCTV.

It was unclear whether residents of the block had committed these offenses or whether the individuals had transported their waste from elsewhere. However, Council now says all suspects are believed to have links to Elizabeth Court as they will walk out of the inner hallway into the street or use a key fob to gain access.
People and Place manager at Canterbury City Council, Suzi Wakeham, said: “We’ve had long-standing issues with the rubbish dumped here and the repeated cleanups have cost taxpayers money. It’s something something we are determined to put a stop to.
“We are grateful to Kent County Council for their support in providing the CCTV camera which enabled us to make this appeal. The images are very clear and we are confident that those involved will be identified.”
