NEW COURSE - Littering from Vehicles Enforcement


When litter is thrown from a vehicle it can be difficult to identify the offender. 
Legislation to tackle litter louts and those who mindlessly throw rubbish from their vehicles enables local authorities to issue a penalty charge notice to the keeper of a vehicle from which litter is thrown, even if the identity of the person who threw the litter cannot be established.
This course provides an in-depth understanding of the civil procedure, to include the appeal and adjudication process, which must be adopted by any local authority looking to include this enforcement tool in its armory to deal with litter and help improve environmental quality.

Learning outcomes

By the end of the training, candidates will:
- Fully understand the complexities of the civil procedure and layered appeals process for dealing with littering from vehicles.

Price: £350 + VAT per place (£315 + VAT  Network Members)

Delegates are steered though the process of environmental enforcement, phases of enforcement, roles and responsibilities, conflict management, environmental legislation and its application in practice, witness statement skills, investigations including interviews under caution, the appeals process and preparing evidence to prosecute offenders. 

The highlight is a real life case (ideally held in a courtroom) where delegates are given the role of a witness and are cross-examined by barristers to gain experience of giving oral evidence in court, as well as acting as the jury to determine the outcome of the trial.
