Local Government and Public Involvement in Health Act 2007

Section 131: Use of fixed penalty receipts

346.This section requires local authorities, when considering how to use their fixed penalty receipts, to have regard to the desirability of using the money in combating nuisances governed by byelaws for which fixed penalty notices may be issued. This means that local authorities would be 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.
