The council has cancelled Juice FM's containerisation notice issued earlier this year, following a request by the station to reconsider the matter.
The Council stated that their priority is not collecting fines, but finding solutions to keeping the city clean.
A spokesperson said: - "We appreciate the commitment Juice has made to work in partnership with the council to find a long term solution to the problem of fly-tipping in Princes Place (see previous story in Knowlegebase - Council shown no tolerance with flytippers) and in recognition of that, we opted to waive the containerisation notice"
Meanwhile Juice FM has issued the following statement: -
"Council officers have further investigated the alleged fly-tipping incident and are fully satisfied that Juice 107.2’s staff were blameless. The Council Officer concerned has "apologised unreservedly" for the embarrassment caused to Juice and agreed to work with the radio station’s management, other local businesses, residents in the area and refuse collection agents in a bid to clean up this key city centre location"
The Business Forum is happy to present both sides of the story but having seen the letter from the local authority to the radio station it certainly appears that the Council have accepted that Juice was not responsible for any fly tipping and the containerisation notice and subsequent publicity was a mistake.
