(2)The period for payment of the fixed penalty is the period of 29 days beginning with the day on which the notice is given.

(3)The council may extend the period for paying the fixed penalty in any particular case if it considers it appropriate to do so.

(3)No such proceedings may be commenced or continued if payment of the penalty is made before the end of that period or is accepted by the council after that time.

(a)the council must hold the hearing;

(b)a person authorised for the purpose by the council of the area in which the offence was committed must notify the procurator fiscal of the request; and

Power to withdraw noticesS

8(1)If the council considers (whether after holding a hearing under paragraph 7 or not) that a fixed penalty notice which has been given ought not to have been given, it may give to the person to whom it was given a notice withdrawing the fixed penalty notice.

Recovery of unpaid fixed penaltiesS

10Subject to paragraphs 8 and 9, where a fixed penalty remains unpaid after the expiry of the period for payment of the penalty it is enforceable in like manner as an extract registered decree arbitral bearing a warrant for execution issued by the sheriff for any sheriffdom.
