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
