Our Enforcement team issue fines known as Fixed Penalty Notices (FPNs) covering a number of offences, such as:
- dog fouling
- noise nuisance
- selling vehicles on the highway
- abandoned vehicles
FPN's are issued as an alternative to a prosecution in court and can be issued to anyone over 10 years old.
If you have been issued with a FPN, you must either pay the fine or request that the matter be heard by a court. You may not do both.
Failure to pay may result in a higher fine or imprisonment.
