Next Steps

Fly-posting and graffiti are environmental crimes. The law allows our Environmental Crime Enforcement Officers to give anyone seen fly-posting or doing graffiti an on-the-spot fine called a fixed penalty notice (FPN). The FPN is for £80, but if you are prosecuted in court for fly-posting you could receive a maximum fine of £2,500.
