Dear Wirral Metropolitan Borough Council,

https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/i...
According to the FOI linked above, in the financial 2015/16 the income to WBC for litter FPNs was £116000 and in the following year (2016/17) the income dropped to £60000.
Other Freedom of Information requests answered show the number of litter FPNS issued from 01.07.2015 - 30.06.2016 to 9714. The following year the figure was 11408.
In order to clarify details you have provided in previous FOI requests can you please provide a month by month figure for both number of litter FPNs issued monthly and also the net monthly income to WBC for litter FPNs from July 2015 to June 2018 (inclusive).

The FOI linked above states that from the £176000 income from litter FPNS £7405.00 was spent on "CCTV Surveillance kit"...can you please advise how and where this CCTV is used?

Finally, from the above linked FOI, on 30th April 2018 you stated that there was a residual £69284.10 from FPN income that hadn't yet been spent. Can you please update this figure to show WBC income and spending for the financial year 2017/18 and what residual currently remains unspent.

Yours faithfully,

Claire Davidson

Dear InfoMgr, FinDMT,

Per the FOI above can you please update the income figures to current date. Can you also advise what, of the councils share of the FOI income since the first contract commenced in July 2015, has now been spent and how it has been spent and what the current residual is.

Yours sincerely,

Dear Miss Claire Davidson

 

 

Thank you for your recent request made under the Freedom of Information
Act in which you asked

 

“ Please update the income figures to current date. Can you also advise
what, of the councils share of the FOI income since the first contract
commenced in July 2015, has now been spent and how it has been spent and
what the current residual is.”

 

 

Please find Wirral Borough Councils response as follows

 

Since the enforcement contract with Kingdom began in 2015, the Council has
paid Kingdom approximately £1.247m.

In this time, the Council has collected income from fines of £1.558m and
recouped £0.842m from legal proceeding relating to litter and dog fouling
enforcement.

Consequently, the Council has received a net income amount of £1.153m
since the Kingdom contract began in 2015.

 

This net income is used to offset the annual street cleansing costs of
£3.8m and to fund reserves and other costs worth £200k created for
environmental schemes such as Love Where You Live, the Love Wirral
marketing brand and grot spot clearance programme.

 

 

We trust that this information answers your enquiries.

 

Yours sincerely,
