FINE THE LITTER BUGS AND THE 'SPITTERS'

I would not mind paying extra council tax to see the streets of Birmingham being cleaned up and heavy prosecation for those who litter and spit on our pavements! 

Why the contribution is important

to regain a proud community feel, clean streets equal clean minds and manners!

    schreuder,

    I have done a small amount of research into this and both these issues seam to be covered under Section 87 of the Environmental Protection Act 1990 (as Amended by Clean neighborhoods Act 2005)

    So theoretically BCC could issue fixed penalty notices for both these things. However I am a little concerned that the cost of enforcing these may out way the money received from fines.

    That being said it shouldn't cost the council to much money to at least have fixed penalty notices set up for both these things as a discouragement to this sort of anti social behavior.
