Prosecuting environmental offences
We take our responsibilities to allow residents to enjoy clean streets and to prevent behaviour that causes nuisance and risk to public health very seriously.
We understand that paying for a fixed penalty notice can be a stressful experience. We would like to make the process as straightforward as possible.
We give out fixed penalty notices (fines) to people to punish them for committing environmental offences, such as fly-tipping, graffiti and littering.
We use our legal powers to the full to prosecute offenders where appropriate. Here are some of the recent actions we have taken.
