£400 fine for littering out of car window

£400 fine for littering out of car window

Drop your litter and face the consequences. That's the stark message from East Northamptonshire Council (ENC) who recently prosecuted a driver for just such an offence.

Back in January, an ENC environmental services officer witnessed the driver throw an empty cigarette packet out of his car window on Kettering Road, Thrapston. The driver was identified as Ryan Potticary and was offered a fixed penalty notice of £150 (reduced to £100 if paid within 10 days). Despite reminders being sent, Mr Potticary failed to pay the fine and was then referred to court where he was offered the opportunity to enter a plea by post. Again, he failed to reply so the case went to Northampton Magistrates Court in August. Mr Potticary did not attend but was found guilty and received a £402 fine. (£220 fine plus a £32 victim surcharge and £150 costs). More »

Steven North, Leader of ENC, said: "All littering is an offence no matter what it is and we all need to take responsibility by using a bin or taking our rubbish home. And that's not just to avoid a fine but to protect where we live, work, play and drive.

"I hope that this case serves as a warning that we will hold those who litter to account and we will pursue through the courts, if necessary. Avoid that hefty fine and do the right thing - bin it." » Less

East Northants Council future proofs grants for the voluntary sector

East Northants Council future proofs grants for the voluntary sector

At a recent meeting of East Northamptonshire Council's Policy & Resources on Monday 7 September, committee members voted for an 'in principle extension' to the support grants and service agreements the Council provides to voluntary sector organisations past 31 March 2021.

As East Northamptonshire Council (ENC) will cease to exist and be replaced by the new North Northamptonshire Council on 1 April 2021, Councillors and Officers were keen to do as much as possible to keep these grants in place, so vital support services to the district's most vulnerable residents continue. More »

Introduced in 2011, the grants and agreements totalling £120,000 a year are awarded to a variety of partner organisations including SERVE, Northamptonshire Domestic Abuse Service and Service Six, and offer a range of specialist services such as transport, support workers and counselling support across East Northamptonshire.

The current round of grants had been due to expire at the end of March 2020, but ENC Councillors had previously agreed to renew them until East Northamptonshire Council ceases to exist at the end of March 2021.

It is hoped that this recent decision will future proof the grants into the new Council, and mean that those who need specialist support can receive it. » Less
