Introduction of Fixed Penalty Notice for Household Waste Duty of Care Offences pdf icon PDF 124 KB

This report asks the Executive Member to decide if the Neighbourhood Enforcement team should be authorised to issue Fixed Penalty Notices for household waste duty of care offences.  In addition, should the FPN be agreed, it recommends the fine level.

 

Decision:

Resolved:      That the Neighbourhood Enforcement Team be authorised to issue Fixed Penalty Notices for household waste duty of care offences.

                       

                        That a fine level of £250.00 with a reduced fee of £150.00 for early repayment within 10 days of issue, be approved.

 

Reason:         To act as a deterrent against fly-tipping

 

 

Minutes:

The Community Safety Manager and Corporate Director for Health, Housing and Adult Social Care were in attendance to present the report.

 

Officers highlighted that the ‘duty of care offences’ noted in the report, referred to householders being held accountable for not checking licenses of any third party removing waste on their behalf. If any waste had previously been collected and then fly tipped, the only options were to prosecute or issue an informal warning. Officers explained that the introduction of Fixed Penalty Notices improved proportionality between this offence and its punishment.

 

The Executive Member was pleased to note that the level of fine suggested for York was the same as other areas in the region and was happy to authorise its introduction.

 

Resolved:  That the Neighbourhood Enforcement Team be authorised to issue Fixed Penalty Notices for household waste duty of care offences.

                  

                   That a fine level of £250.00 with a reduced fee of £150.00 for early repayment within 10 days of issue, be approved.

 

Reason:     To act as a deterrent against fly-tipping
