Environmental enforcement

Pay your fixed penalty notice

If you are caught:

  • littering
  • fly-tipping
  • dropping food on the ground, a pond or a wall
  • leaving your bins on the street

you could be issued with a Fixed Penalty Notice (FPN), also known as a ‘fine’. You can get the notice on the spot or by post. 

The penalty, which will be anything from £80 to £400, or more if you are taken to court, must usually be paid within 14 days. If you do not pay your penalty on time you might be prosecuted and have to pay more. You may be taken to court if you do not pay.  

There is no formal appeal process for an FPN, but if you think your FPN has been wrongly issued, please contact the issuing officer using the contact information on your notice.  

Before you start

Do not use this form to pay a parking penalty charge notice (PCN)

Please follow the instructions on your notice to find out how to pay.

FPNs must be paid in full. We do not accept part payments or payment plans.

You will need

  • your FPN number 
  • the post code of the address where the FPN was posted. This will be included in your penalty notice. (For postal FPNs only)
  •  a credit or debit card to make the payment

What happens next

Once the FPN has been paid, the case will be closed. If you commit the same offence again, you may face court action.
