Rhyl woman fined for littering Parc Prestatyn



A Rhyl woman has been fined for littering in Parc Prestatyn.

The woman was convicted by Llandudno magistrates after she was caught by environmental officers working for Denbighshire County Council. She was fined £70 and ordered to pay a further £145 in costs and a £20 victim surcharge.

The council said the case highlighted their zero tolerance approach to environmental crime. Councillor David Smith said: ”Taking court action against those failing to pay their fixed penalty notices is very much a last resort…It’s only a small number of people that disrespect the environment in this way. We will continue with our efforts to educate the public and we will be vigilant in our communities with action being taken against those who blatantly show little respect to the environment and hamper our efforts to keep Denbighshire’s streets clean and tidy”.
