What we enforce

We work hard to keep our streets clean and safe, but sometimes we need to remind everyone of their responsibilities by taking enforcement action.

Our team of community patrol officers are responsible for tackling environmental crime and making sure that Rushmoor stays safe and clean.

The team of four respond to complaints made by residents, local organisations, councillors, and visitors to Rushmoor as well as carrying out environmental audits.

Our community patrol officers have a range of powers that allow them to enforce current legislation, which can involve issuing warnings, notices, fixed penalty notices and even court proceedings against alleged offenders.

Our streets enforcement team can take action on:

Fixed penalty notices

Offences, which will receive a fixed penalty notice of up to £300 include:

  • Minor graffiti and fly-posting offences
  • Fly-tipping
  • Failure to comply with a Community Protection Notice
  • Dropping litter in a public space
  • Dog fouling
  • Noise from licensed premises
  • Abandoning a vehicle
  • Nuisance parking
  • Failure to produce authority for transporting waste (waste transfer note)
  • Failure to provide documentation (waste carrier's licence)
  • Offences relating to rubbish bins

For a full list of offences and charges, please see our current list of pdf icon Fixed Penalty Notices - offences and charges [26kb].

We refer to our Corporate Enforcement Policy and Environmental Improvement Strategy when considering enforcement action.
 
In most cases, we will only take action where we have considered other options and the problem remains.
