Fines for failing to give information to the council

From 1 April 2021 councils may ask for information from an owner, tenant or occupier. You may be liable for a fine of up to £95 if you do not respond within 21 days.

If you do not respond within 21 days the council may ask you a second time for the information. You may be liable for a fine of up to £370 if you do not respond to that within 21 days.

Appeals

If you think you've been given a fine in error you should first discuss it with your local Assessor or Council who'll review it.

If you still disagree you can make an appeal. You can do this by writing to or emailing your local assessor or council.
