FLY-TIPPERS may face tougher penalties as the Council clamp down on environmental crime.

The changes are set to be approved next week, following government changes imposed on April 1.

Enforcement action can be taken by the council against people who commit environment-based crimes such as littering, dog fouling, noise and fly-posting.

If caught, you can face a fixed penalty notice of £100.

No decisions have been set, however the changes may be approved when the cabinet members attend the annual review on Wednesday.
