This is the original version (as it was originally enacted).
(1)A fixed penalty notice is a notice which—
(a)sets out the condition in question and details of the failure to comply with it,
(b)requires the owner of the land to pay a specified amount to the local authority at an address specified in the notice, and
(c)specifies the period within which the specified amount must be paid.
(2)The amount specified in a fixed penalty notice given at any time must not exceed the amount specified at that time as level 1 on the standard scale for summary offences.
(3)Without prejudice to payment by any other method, payment of an amount specified in a fixed penalty notice may be made by pre-paying and posting a letter containing the amount (in cash or otherwise) to the local authority at the address specified in the notice; and in that case payment is to be regarded as having been made at the time at which that letter would be delivered in the ordinary course of post.
