Please refer to Penalty Notices for littering (including from vehicles)

Wandsworth Borough Council had issued the following number of notices for this offence:

2013/14  –  78 (4 were appealed)
2014/15  –  64  (2 appeals)
2015/16  – 19  (0 appeals)
2016/17  – 51 (0 appeals)

Source: info  enquiry 19th June 2015 and info enquiry 9th March 2017

The appeals were made to London Tribunals.

Checking their web site I found that the following number of appeals for this offence had been processed:

2013/14   –  no info not available
2014/15    – 6 appeals (all from Wandsworth – the 4 from 13/14 have been lumped into 14/15)
2015/16    – 1 appeal (all from Wandsworth)
2016/17    – 3 appeals (Wandsworth 2, Redbridge 1)

Apart from 1 from Redbridge the other 9 appeals have come from registered keepers who committed offences in Wandsworth.

Does this mean that only two London Borough using this legislation?

For Wandsworth 212 PCNs resulted in 9 appeals i.e. 4% or 1 in 23 were appealed.

Total of 10 appeals therefore  indicates 10 x 23 = 230 PCNs in say 3 years over 33 Boroughs i.e. 2.3 per Borough per annum
