We have a zero tolerance approach to anti-social behaviour of any kind and will issue fixed penalty notices (FPNs) to those committing environmental or highway offences.

Environmental crimes can have a negative impact on the lives of our citizens in the borough.

Since the Clean Neighbourhoods and Environment Act 2005 became law, new measures have been introduced, allowing local councils to fine anyone committing an environmental crime that damages the street scene.

Our enforcement team patrol the borough on a daily basis to ensure our streets are kept clean and safe and can issue Fixed Penalty Notices (FPNs) for a wide range of offences including:

  • littering
  • dog fouling
  • unlicensed scaffolding and skips
  • pavement and road obstructions
  • Abandoned vehicles
  • Exposing vehicles for sale on the highway
  • Repairing vehicles on the highway

FPNs will also be issued for failure to comply with terms and conditions of licences for skips and scaffolding.

Our officers are trained to carry out enforcement in the borough and to promote our ambition for cleaner, greener and safer neighbourhoods.
