Litter enforcement patrols to begin across Adur and WorthingFind below details that from tomorrow enforcement patrols will be carried out across Adur and Worthing as part of crackdown on littering and dog fouling.
Those caught dropping litter will receive an on-the-spot fine of £75. Those who do not clear up their dog’s mess will receive an on-the-spot fine of £100.
The self-funding trial scheme, which already operates in Chichester and Arun districts, has been introduced after feedback from local residents and community groups.
It comes just weeks after leaders of both Councils issued a general warning that anti-social behaviour around litter and parking cannot be tolerated in Adur and Worthing this summer - with specially-designed posters installed in high-profile areas, alternative off-street car parks have been promoted and examples of littering highlighted on social media.
