15/05/2020 - The Health Protection (Coronavirus, Restrictions) (England) Regulations 2020 ref: 364    Recommendations Approved

Fixed Penalty Notices are an enforcement sanction often used as a sanction or as an alternative to more formal legal proceedings. The Council already issues fixed penalties for a variety of offences and over time new fixed penalties and charges are introduced that can assist officers in their day to day duties. The most recent introduction originates from The Health Protection (Coronavirus, Restrictions) (England) Regulations 2020. Fixed Penalty Notices will assist the Council taking prompt action against businesses that refuse to comply with the Regulations.
