Fixed Penalty Notices

Graffiti is an environmental crime. The law authorises our Neighbourhood Wardens and Supervisors to issue fixed penalty notices (FPNs) to anyone caught doing graffiti. If you are prosecuted in court for graffiti you could receive a substantial fine or even a prison term.

Pay a fixed penalty notice (FPN) for graffiti
