What a fixed penalty notice can be issued for

Breaching a community protection notice

A Community Protection Notice (CPN) is issued if unacceptable behaviour continues after a written warning has been given. Notices set out what needs to change and sets a deadline. If correct action is not taken fixed penalty can be issued.

In some cases we may also arrange for the other actions or ‘works in default’ to solve a problem and recover costs from those responsible.

If problems continue the matter can be referred to the magistrates’ court which can:

  • fine the perpetrator
  • order the perpetrator to carry out remedial work, or to allow the local authority to carry it out
  • make a forfeiture order requiring any specified item be handed over to the police, local authority or designated person
  • order the seizure of specified items 


  • £75 if paid within 10 days
  • £100 if paid on day 11-14 after the penalty was issued


Anti-Social Behaviour, Crime & Policing Act 2014 Section 52.
