To approve the removal of the early payment option for those who are issued with a fixed penalty notice
Reasons for the decision:
The council has long advocated taking a serious stance against fly-tipping and offenders. Removing the early repayment option for fixed penalty notices is consistent with that position
Alternative options considered:
The alternative option is to leave the early repayment option in place, however this will not support our efforts to reduce this type of anti-social behaviour.
