Clean Neighbourhoods and Environment Act (Northern Ireland) 2011

Section 27 – Amount of penalty

This section enables a district council to vary the fixed penalty amount for a graffiti or fly-posting offence in its district.  Where no amount is specified by a district council, the amount of the fixed penalty is £75. This amount may be changed by an order made by the Department.  In either case, the council may provide for a lesser amount to be paid if early payment is made within a specified period. In addition, the Department may make regulations relating to the fixed penalty amount, for example to specify a range within which the amount should fall.
