A fixed penalty notice is a fine and an opportunity for an offence not to be taken further to court.
If one of our authorised officers believes you have committed an offence then they could prosecute you for the offence. However, a fixed penalty fine will usually be issued instead unless you have received one previously.
On payment of the fixed penalty fine, we cannot prosecute you for the offence but if payment is not received then we will prosecute you for the original offence.
How to pay
Please quote the red FPN reference number at the bottom of the notice to ensure your payment is processed quickly.
You can pay by cash cheque or debit card at any of the council offices, by telephone: 01246 242424 to pay using a debit card or by post. Cheques can be made payable to Bolsover District Council with your name and address on the back. Please include the notice with the payment.
