Residents in one Ilford street got a rude awakening this morning as the first Redbridge Council enforcement action day took place.
Officers tackling issues around anti-social behaviour, fly-tipping, rubbish, graffiti, street cleaning and parking were joined by police in the joint operation, targeting Oaklands Park Avenue.
The initiative is the first of a planned year of enforcement action, with the council bringing departments together under a new joint action group.
Cllr Ross Hatfull, cabinet member for community safety and enforcement, said: “This sort of joined up, very visible, in you face enforcement action is extremely important.”
He said the authority wanted to “stamp down very hard” on those flouting regulations.
