Dear South Oxfordshire District Council,

I have made a previous freedom of information request on litter statistics. Thank you for the information you provided. It has been very helpful. I noticed that you have not issued fixed penalty notices for public space protection orders. I've listed possible reasons below and would be very appreciative if you could state the reason(s).

1) Because the council was previously unaware of these statutory provisions.
2) Because other statutory provisions sufficiently address the litter problem (if so, can you please state the relevant legislation).
3) Because of an education campaign to address litter?
4) Because the council uses other strategies to address the litter problem (if so, can you please provide further details).
5) Because there is not a litter problem in your district/borough.
6) Because the data for littering is not recorded.
7) Other reason(s).

Yours faithfully,

Samantha Davey

Dear Mrs Brown,

Thank you for getting back to me. I am aware that the council does not have any PSPOs in place. We are interested in working out reasons why PSPOs are not being used.

Yours sincerely,

Samantha Davey

Karen Brown,

Dear Samantha

In relation to littering enforcement there is other legislation in place to address the issue (Clean Neighbourhoods Act 2005). Further information can be found on the council’s webpage.

http://www.southoxon.gov.uk/services-and...
http://www.whitehorsedc.gov.uk/services-...

We are currently investigating the implementation of further PSPOs for our market towns and shall consider littering offences along with the other array of issues that these orders can potentially address (only if there inclusion is justified and supported by evidence of an issue).

Kind regards

Karen
