Coronavirus (Covid-19): service updates, support and health advice.

Environmental enforcement

Our Environmental Enforcement team deals with people and organisations who commit crimes that have a negative impact on the environment.

The team also provides education and guidance on a range of topics to promote good health and quality of life.

Street enforcement

From December 2021, as a pilot, we are introducing Street Enforcement Officers (SEOs) who will patrol the streets of South Gloucestershire.

SEOs focus on reducing littering and dog fouling, by:

  • conducting visible uniform patrols
  • issuing warnings and fixed penalty notices
  • talking to people about the negative impact littering and dog fouling have on our community.

SEOs also look out for:

  • abandoned vehicles
  • fly posting
  • graffiti
  • fly tipping

Fixed penalty notices (FPNs)

A fixed penalty notice gives you the opportunity to pay a fine after committing an offence. Paying the fine stops any further legal action being taken against you.

You can pay a fine by phone by calling 0345 245 0682. We accept credit or debit card payments and this phone line is available 24 hours a day 7 days a week.

You can also pay by post by sending a payment slip and cheque to:

Built Environment Enforcement
Department for Environment and Community Services
South Gloucestershire Council
PO Box 1954
Bristol
BS37 0DD

Make the cheque payable to South Gloucestershire Council and write the FPN number and your name and address on the reverse.  Allow 2 working days for first-class post and 5 working days for second-class post.
