Enforcement

Aims and principles

We aim to safeguard and improve the health, safety and environment of our community by delivering a wide range of enforcement services in a fair and consistent way.

Fixed Penalty Notices

We investigate instances of environmental crime in public places across the district.

Dog fouling

We ask you to help in keeping our streets and spaces clean by ensuring you clean up after your dog. Many sites have bins provided especially for this purpose.

Fly-posting

Fly-posting is the unauthorised placing of advertising - usually posters or stickers. It is illegal and spoils both public and private property and it can be very costly to remove.

Planning enforcement

Our planning enforcement officers will investigate any alleged breaches of planning control

Untaxed vehicles
