Protecting Public & Private Land From Fly-Tipping & Unauthorised Access
Posted on 30th March 2020 at 12:56
With many leisure facilities, schools, businesses, public and recreation venues now closed for the foreseeable future, many are choosing this downtime time to completely review their perimeter security and maintenance arrangements.
Sadly, we are also learning from the news there are people trying to take advantage of the current situation, purposely and unlawfully gaining access to empty and closed buildings and to take advantage to illegally fly-tip in roads and streets.
An article in today's Manchester Evening News unfortunately covers this news story. (31/03/2020)
Some time ago, the Highways Agency approached Cova to specifically design a manual 'anti-tamperproof' gate to provide increased protection for farmers and landowners alongside the M20/M25 motorway stretch in Kent. They were experiencing instances where persons and their vehicles were trespassing land to take unauthorised temporary residence.
However, this gate has also provided numerous solutions when it was required to completely close off private land, recreational areas and roadways (with emergency access permitted) and to prevent continual fly-tipping.
DEFRA report that there were a record number of 1,072,000 fly-tipping incidents reported in 2018/19 across the UK, an increase of 8% from the previous year, and with many recycling centres now closed for the foreseeable future, the problem isn't going to go away.
Below demonstrates the broken compromised gate, and at the same site after installation our Anti-Vandal Manual Gate, click this link or image below to view the product page for more information.
