First images reveal Glenn Tamplin land where 15,000 tonnes of waste was dumped
The first images have emerged from the back of a property owned by former football boss Glenn Tamplin after as much as 15,000 tonnes of rubbish was dumped there. Glenn Tamplin has until November to remove the rubbish from 140 London Road, known as “Bliss Heights”.
Former Billericay Town FC manager Glenn Tamplin has been served an enforcement notice after 15,000 tonnes of rubbish was discovered dumped on his land in Abridge. Mr Tamplin has until November to remove the rubbish from 140 London Road, known as ‘Bliss Heights’.
The former manager and owner of Billericay Town FC and former owner of Romford FC still has a month after that to restore the ground to its previous state. Records show that Bliss Heights is registered with Glenn David Tamplin. There is no evidence that Mr. Tamplin was responsible for the dumping of the waste. Essex County Council’s Development and Regulatory Committee also heard that the land had been repossessed by creditors and that all affected parties had been notified of the notice of execution.

the Essex County Council The notice of execution served on April 11 will take effect on May 18, 2022, unless first appealed. The enforcement notice requires that the waste be removed from the land within six months and that the land be returned to its condition prior to the start of the unauthorized development within seven months.
This follows a joint site inspection with the Environment Agency, Epping Forest District Council and Essex Fire and Rescue Service on March 29, 2022, which revealed that approximately 10,000 to 15,000 tonnes of waste consisting of trommel fines and soil had been deposited at the site.
The waste was reportedly brought to the site between December 2021 and February 2022. In early 2014, the landowner and a waste disposal company were prosecuted by the Environment Agency for illegal dumping of waste at this site.
Enforcement officer George Stockdale told the committee on April 22: “The waste was brought to the site without the benefit of planning permission and planning permission is unlikely to be granted retrospectively.
“Then Essex County Council, as the waste planning authority, served notice of enforcement on the owner of the land and other affected parties interested in the land.
“This formal notice will take effect on May 18 unless appealed beforehand. The formal notice imposes the cessation of activities.
“The site has been taken over by a company through creditors. They have installed 24 hour security. The doors are locked and locked so hopefully nothing will come in.
“It has ceased since February, so from that point of view we are quite happy that the new creditors are quite on, so nothing can come in this month with the land returned to its previous state within seven months.
“We will continue to work with the Environment Agency as they continue their investigation of the operators and ensure the enforcement notice is adhered to. If not, we will go further.”
