Fixed Penalty Notices for environmental offences

What is a Fixed Penalty Notice (FPN)?

FPNs are issued by our enforcement officers to deal with environmental offences including littering, dog fouling, failing to keep a dog on a lead, flyposting, flytipping, graffiti and smoking in smoke-free premises.

How do I pay?

Payment methods depend on which enforcement team issued your FPN and the payment reference code on it.
