The Council has enforcement powers to deal with a range of offences relating to fly-tipping, duty of care, graffiti, fly-posting and abandoned vehicles. The use of a fixed penalty notice (FPN) allows the Council the option to deal with more minor offences or the breach of other enforcement notices in a proportionate manner. This report recommends that the level of penalty for FPNs served for fly-tipping offences is increased to bring these in line with other similar offences, and that Executive agree to the use (and level of penalty) of additional FPNs for further offences as detailed within the report: abandoned vehicles, graffiti, fly-posting, domestic duty of care and breach of Community Protection Notices.
