Seen it? Report it.
Everyone wants to be proud of Plymouth and to live in a clean and tidy city. So if you see someone commit a littering, fly tipping or dog fouling offence, you can report it to our team here.
I don't agree with the FPN, what can I do?
There is no legal appeal against an FPN. It is a criminal offence. You can pay the fine to discharge your liability for prosecution, or the case will be considered for prosecution in the Magistrates Court. You can put your case to the Magistrates Court if you do not agree with the FPN.
We will consider representations in certain circumstances and only within 7 days of the FPN being issued. We do not accept representations if you did not know enforcement was being carried out, if it was the first time you had committed the offence or that you were not aware of the law.
To make a representation for other reasons, please email firstname.lastname@example.org within 7 days of the date of issue. Representations will not be accepted after this timeframe.
You will receive a response to your representation if it is made in the time limit. If the representation is accepted, the case will be closed and you will hear nothing else from us. If the representation is rejected you will have a further 7 days to pay the FPN.
The Council are pursuing cases of littering through the Magistrates Court. Convictions can lead to a fine, court costs and a criminal record, imposed by the Magistrates Court.
