What are fixed penalty notices?

Fixed penalty notices may be issued when an enforcing officer believes that an offence has been committed and it's appropriate.

Fixed penalties can provide an effective and visible way of responding to low-level environmental crimes..

Funds from fixed penalty receipts must be used to support the enforcement area that generated them.

Failure to pay the fixed penalty notice within 14 days may result in legal action being taken against the alleged offender. This action will be taken in the magistrate's court with a maximum fine of £1000. The actual fine level and awarding of legal costs is at the discretion of the magistrates.
