Fixed penalty notices

How to pay your fixed penalty notice 

If you received a fixed penalty notice issued by enforcement agents operating on behalf of the council, go to their website.

The fixed penalty notice reference number will start with LAS followed by a 9 digit number. These cannot be paid through the methods below.

You cannot pay an officer at the time you are given a fixed penalty notice. There are a number of ways you can choose to pay the fine, which are listed below. Officers cannot accept any form of payment. 


You can pay online using a debit or credit card. Simply enter your fixed penalty notice number, confirm the details and move on to making a payment. 

Note: You may have to wait up to 24 hours after the crime before you can pay the fine online.
