Fixed Penalty Notices for Environmental Offences

The request was successful.

Dear Wirral Metropolitan Borough Council,

I have recently been reviewing your reporting on the above subject. What I have noticed is that the information regarding the number of cases referred for: 1) Prosecution; 2) Written off/cancelled ceased in July 2018 but had previously been supplied so there 'must' be a way of reporting.

This information is vital, in that it informs all Wirral residents that the FPN Appeal system is effective/working and I now request that this information is backdated and supplied in future.

'Open and transparent' comes to mind.

Yours faithfully,

Hazel Harrison

InfoMgr, FinDMT, Wirral Metropolitan Borough Council

Dear Ms Harrison


We write in response to your recent correspondence.  Please be advised
that Wirral Council does publish information relating to enforcement of
environmental offences at the following link but due to a technical error,
this information has not been updated for some time. 




This error has now been rectified and that the missing data will be made
available shortly on the Council’s webpage. Section 22 of the Freedom of
Information Act 2000, ‘information intended for future publication’,
therefore applies. The Information Commissioner’s guidance on Section 22
can be found at [2]this link.


Please be assured that the Council is committed to openness and
transparency and we thank you for bringing this matter to our attention.

You have the right under Section 17 of the Freedom of Information Act 2000
to ask for an internal review of the refusal of the information requested.
Please direct any request for an internal review to
[3][Wirral Borough Council request email] and your request will be allocated for
review.  If you are dissatisfied with the outcome of an internal review
you also have the right to complain to the information Commissioner, who
can be contacted at [4]

Yours sincerely
