Redruth man fined £400 for repeatedly dumping scrap metal and rubble on land
A Redruth man has been fined £400 and ordered to pay £1246.45 legal costs after dumping scrap and building materials on private land.
Robert Frederick Mallaber of Foxes Row, Carharrack, was fined £400 by Truro Magistrates after pleading guilty to two charges of failing to comply with planning enforcement notices.
The two notices, which were issued in February 2000 and April 2000, required Mr Mallaber to stop using the land at 12 Foxes Row for the depositing and storage of building materials, vehicles parts, domestic and other similar items.
The enforcement notice also called for him to stop using land at Trevarth Road, Carharrack for the storage of trailers, derelict vehicles, scrap metal, building materials and rubble.

Cornwall Council said it was forced to take legal action after Mallabar persisted in dumping materials at the site, which had been previously cleared by the landowner.
Hayley Jewels, the council’s enforcement group leader, said: “Failing to comply with an enforcement notice is a criminal offence. Anyone who does not comply with these notices can expect to be prosecuted which could result in them gaining a criminal record. These notices remain on the land permanently and the council will not tolerate repeated breaches”.
As well as receiving a £400 fine, Mr Mallaber was also ordered to pay £1246.45 towards the Council’s costs plus a £20 victim surcharge.
