Following further incidents of fly-tipping in Minstead we suggest that if you have a smartphone you may like to download the New Forest In Touch mobile app which lets you photograph, video and report problems directly to the Council where the issue will be quickly addressed by the appropriate service. The app enables you to report fly-tipping, pot holes in the road, abandoned vehicles, dead animals, nuisance bonfires, blocked drains and graffiti and many other problems.

To download visit


There is a section ‘report it’ which enables us all to upload a photo immediately with the location to help NFDC address the problem quickly.

The more people who report things the better!
