The council has agreed to hire an external agency to supply enforcement officers for serving fixed penalty notices for offences related to littering and dog fouling. They will be similar to the council’s private parking wardens.
These officers will wear body cameras and issue £80 fines once they have evidence of littering. There will be no reduction for early payment. Names and addresses will be taken and the police follow up will result if the officers feel they have been given incorrect details. Letters will be sent out to parents of young offenders.
