Permit scheme for road works and street works

Last updated: 28 April 2022

16. Fixed Penalty Notices (FPNs)

The permit regulations provide for certain offences under Part 3 of the TMA to become fixed penalty offences. This means that they can be dealt with by Fixed Penalty Notices (FPNs).

Fixed Penalty Notices offer the offender an opportunity to discharge criminal liability for an offence by paying a penalty amount, although prosecution through the Magistrates' Courts remains an option for Permit Authorities.

Reference should be made to regulations current at the time.
