We receive new powers to fine tenants for anti-social behaviour

Fly tipping

News story published on 18 August 2016

We have recently been awarded authority to issue Community Protection Notices by Peterborough City Council. The aim of the notices is to tackle anti-social behaviour and improve the quality for life for communities across the city.

The CPN will be issued to perpetrators of persistent, unreasonable behaviour that has a detrimental effect on those in the locality. The CPN will follow formal requests that the perpetrator ceases the behaviour or take reasonable steps to avoid further anti-social behaviour. Breaching a CPN is a criminal offence and will result in a fixed penalty notice being issued, up to £100. Breaches could also result perpetrators being fined up to £1,000, paying for remedial work or forfeiting items. Revenue from fines will go to Peterborough City Council.

CPNs will cover a wide range of behaviours including noise nuisance, graffiti, littering and fly tipping.

Joan Tibbs, Director of Neighbourhood Management at CKH, said: “Having these powers to issue CPNs give us another tool in the fight against anti-social behaviour that can blight the lives of residents in the city. They make it clear to the small number of perpetrators that their behaviour will not be tolerated. It also gives us the power to rectify any damage caused at the expense of the perpetrator and not the public purse.”
