Litter and graffiti
By law, you cannot drop litter in any open public place, this includes cigarette butts and chewing gum.
We can fine anyone that drops litter £75.
If you fail to pay the fine within 14 days legal proceedings will be started. A Magistrate's Court may impose a fine of up to £2,500.
We will arrange for graffiti on public property to be removed. The timescale for its removal will depend upon the content.
We will take action on flytipping and the dumping of waste on public roads and land we own. We will prosecute anyone we can identify as having dumped waste.

We will remove illegally posted adverts and posters on property in the area.
