Thousands of littering fines issued by Arun district council

No tolerance approach to littering

Arun district council have issued 6,000 littering fines within the last five years.

The fines would have brought in at least £62,000. This money does not go to Arun District Council but is instead kept by East Hants District Council which provides enforcement on its behalf.

July 2022 saw the highest number of fines issued than any other month (109) and fines tend to peak during the summer.

There have also been calls from councillors to work more with schools to encourage pupils to stop dropping litter.
