How much do Kingdom Services Group Limited receive in £££s for issuing fixed penalty notices for litter and dog fouling on the Wirral in 2019?
Leaked information about Wirral Council’s controversial 3 year contract with Kingdom Services Group Limited has revealed the amounts in pounds that Kingdom receive for issuing Fixed Penalty Notices (FPNs), the hourly rate for environmental enforcement work and work on skip permits.
The amounts also include enforcement of Public Space Protection Orders (such as the proposed Dog Control Public Space Protection Order to be discussed on Tuesday evening).
The hourly rates for an Environmental Enforcement Officer are below:
Year 1 – £18.00 to £20.00 (depending on time of day)
Year 2 – £18.45 to £20.50 (depending on time of day)
Year 3 – £18.91 to £21.00 (depending on time of day)
The hourly rates for a Senior Environmental Officer are below:
Year 1 – £18.45 to £20.45 (depending on time of day)
Year 2 – £18.91 to £20.96 (depending on time of day)
Year 3 – £19.38 to £21.48 (depending on time of day)
Kingdom can also charge £24,553 for processing skip permit applications for the Wirral area, acting as a point of contact, plotting the skips on an electronic map system and generating invoices for Wirral Council.
However the more controversial aspect are the amounts Kingdom receive for each “justified” fixed penalty notice (FPN) issued (which range for breaches of smoke free legislation, littering, littering from vehicles, idling engines and breaches of Public Space Protection Orders).
