Public Consultation on Environmental Enforcement

Bassetlaw residents and businesses are being asked if they would like to continue to see fixed penalty notices of £100 issued to people who do not pick up after their dog and who drop litter on our streets. Please complete the survey.

Over the last 10 months, Bassetlaw District Council has been working in partnership with District Enforcement, a company that specialises in environmental enforcement, on a pilot project that takes a firmer approach to environmental crimes.

As part of this pilot, Enforcement Officers have been patrolling communities across the district, issuing Fixed Penalty Notices of £100 should they witness people littering or failing to clean up after their dog.

The Council is now asking Bassetlaw residents and businesses to give us their views as part of a six-week consultation. These responses will help to inform a decision on whether to continue to provide Enforcement Officers with legal powers that allows them to issue FPN's on behalf of the Council.
