Environmental enforcement officers will soon be patrolling outside Plymouth’s schools
From Monday 19 March, you may start to see extra environmental enforcement officers patrolling the streets outside Plymouth’s schools to help crackdown on things like dog fouling, littering, fly-posting and fly-tipping. Plymouth City Council has teamed up with specialist company Kingdom Services, to help ensure that Plymouth is a green and pleasant city.
The officers will be able to issue fixed penalty notices to offenders. Littering and fly-posting both carry an £80 penalty while dog fouling costs offenders £100. Meanwhile, fly-tipping is punishable by a £400 fine. Council leader Ian Bowyer said: "We know that people are fed up with issues like littering, dog fouling, and fly tipping, particularly around our schools, and by introducing extra enforcement officers we can now deal with these anti-social activities more effectively.”
