Fixed penalty notices

13Fixed penalty notices

(1)Where an authorised officer of an enforcement authority has reason to believe that a person has committed an offence under section 2 or 3 in the authority’s area, the officer may give that person a fixed penalty notice in respect of the offence.

(2)A fixed penalty notice, for the purposes of subsection (1), is a notice offering a person the opportunity to discharge any liability to conviction for the offence to which the notice relates by paying a penalty of £1000.

(3)The Welsh Ministers may by regulations substitute a different amount for the amount for the time being specified in subsection (2).

(4)A fixed penalty notice given under this section is to be treated as if it were given under section 29 of the Housing (Wales) Act 2014 (anaw 7) for the purposes of subsections (2), (3) and (6) to (8) of that section (provision about how fixed penalty notices are given), and for this purpose the reference in subsection (8)(a) of that section to “the licensing authority” is to be treated as being a reference to the enforcement authority in question.

(5)Fixed penalty receipts received by an enforcement authority by virtue of this section may not be used otherwise than for the purpose of the authority’s functions relating to the enforcement of the provisions of this Act.
