City Wardens: Working with you to improve the city's environment 


The city wardens aim to:


  • Improve the quality of the local environment

  • Engage with local communities to promote the local environment

  • Provide a visible and approachable “on-the-street” reassuring presence and point of contact for the public.

  • The wardens also conduct plain clothes patrols in "hot Spot" areas. When issuing a Fixed Penalty Notice they will show their Leicester City Council I.D badge and their warrant of authority as proof of who they are.

The Wardens duties will cover a wide range of issues including:

  • Litter
  • Graffiti
  • Fly-posting 
  • Nuisance parking (vehicles for sale or being repaired on the highway) 
  • Leaflet distribution 
  • Dog fouling
  • Bins on streets
  • Waste duty of care.
  • Smokefree offences
  • Skips, scaffolding and Hoardings
  • Untidy Land
  • A boards
