Local Government Byelaws (Wales) Act 2012

Section 15 – Use of fixed penalty receipts

54.Section 15 requires a legislating authority, when considering how to use their fixed penalty receipts, to have regard to the desirability of using the money in combating nuisances for the prevention of which any byelaw has been made.  This means that legislating authorities are required to consider whether fixed penalty receipts should be used generally in combating such nuisances. It would not be necessary for receipts to be used only towards combating the nuisance the relevant byelaw is concerned with.
