Fixed Penalty Notices

Fixed Penalty Notices (FPN) are issued by Stirling Council's Enforcement Officers.

FPNs for Littering and Fly Tipping are enforced under the Environmental Protection Act (EPA) 1990. Section 87 states it is a criminal offence for a person to drop, throw down or deposit litter in a public space. If a person is found guilty they can be issued with a Fixed Penalty Notice of £80. Section 33A states It is a criminal offence to dump waste onto land that has no licence to accept it – from a bin bag of household rubbish to large quantities of tyres or construction waste. If a person is found guilty of the offence they can be issued with a Fixed Penalty Notice of £200.

The Dog Fouling (Scotland) Act 2003 states it is an offence for a person in charge of a dog to fail to remove and dispose appropriately any excrement after the dog has fouled in all public places. The Fixed Penalty monetary value is £80.
