Pay a fine

We issue fines for offences like littering, noise nuisance, dog control offences, smoking in a workplace and non-compliance with Energy Performance Certificate legislation.

You can pay these in person, by post, telephone and some can be paid online.

Pay a fine online

You can pay for the following offences online:

  • littering
  • dog fouling
  • dog straying
  • failure to license a dog
  • failure to display a Food Hygiene Rating Scheme sticker 

If you've been issued with a fixed penalty for one of these offences, you'll be able to pay it online once you've received your notice in the post.

You'll need to enter your fixed penalty reference number which is on the top left of the fixed penalty notice. Please make sure to enter your reference number and surname in the exact format they appear on the notice. You will also need to provide your email address so we can send you a payment confirmation.
