Fixed Penalty Notices Coronavirus

Local authorities have been given temporary powers to enforce the compulsory closure of certain businesses. This is to comply with laws introduced to halt the spread of COVID-19. Our officers will work with police where necessary to enforce regulations.

It is an offence to breach the regulations and could result in fixed penalty notices (FPNs) being issued or prosecution and an unlimited fine.

If you receive a fixed penalty notice:

  • Please enter the amount shown on your FPN
  • Pay the £100 fine within 28 calendar days of the notice being issued
  • If payment is made within 14 days of the date of the notice, the fixed penalty is reduced to £50
  • Dispute the issuing of the notice and await the court summons or request a court hearing

If you do not pay or if the court rules against you, you may be liable to pay a higher fine.

Subsequent FPNs issued will be of increasing amounts with no discount for early payment.
