Pay a Fixed Penalty Notice (FPN) fine online. View types of FPN, other ways to pay and maximum charges if not paid promptly.
Fixed Penalty Notices and Civil Penalty Notices are issued for a variety of offences, such as littering, dog fouling, illegal disposal of waste, anti-social behaviour and environmental nuisance.
In cases where an authorised officer is satisfied that an environmental offence has been committed, the council is able to issue Notices on the spot or they can be sent through the post.
Fixed Penalty Notices will be offered rather than prosecuting the environmental offence via the courts where a criminal conviction may be obtained. The Fixed Penalty Notices are only offered for lower level crimes or first offences. If you pay the Fixed Penalty Notice no further action can be taken in the case of the envirocrime offence that has been committed. If you choose not to pay the Fixed Penalty Notice the case will be progressed via a Magistrates Court and may result in a criminal conviction.
The seriousness of the offence and the history of offending is taken into account where the decision is taken to progress the offence via a Magistrates Court.
North Lincolnshire Council shares payment systems with Doncaster Council. In some cases you may be taken to one of their websites or payment systems to pay a fine. If your penalty notice reference begins with ‘DN’ then it has to be paid to Doncaster Council using the link below.
