‘After section 43 of the Anti-Social Behaviour Act 2003 (c.38) insert—

 

“43A  

Community punishments for graffiti and fly-posting

 

(1)    

Where an authorised officer of a local authority has reason to believe that

 

a person has committed a relevant offence in the area of that authority, he

 

may give that person a notice offering him the opportunity of discharging

 

any liability to conviction for that offence by the completion of a

 

community service punishment in accordance with the notice.

 

(2)    

But an authorised officer may not give a notice under subsection (1) if he

 

considers that the commission of the offence—

 

(a)    

in the case of a relevant offence falling within section 44(1)(c),

 

also involves the commission of an offence under section 30 of

 

the Crime and Disorder Act 1998 (c. 37) (racially or religiously

 

aggravated criminal damage), or

 

(b)    

in the case of any other relevant offence, was motivated (wholly

 

or partly) by hostility—

 

(i)    

towards a person based upon his membership (or

 

presumed membership) of a racial or religious group, or

 

(ii)    

towards the members of a racial or religious group based

 

on their membership of that group.

 

(3)    

In the case of a relevant offence falling within section 44(1)(f), an

 

authorised officer may not give a notice to a person under subsection (1)

 

in relation to the display of an advertisement unless he has reason to

 

believe that that person personally affixed or placed the advertisement to,

 

against or upon the land or object on which the advertisement is or was

 

displayed.

 

(4)    

Where a person is given a notice under subsection (1) in respect of an

 

offence—

 

(a)    

no proceedings may be instituted for that offence (or any other

 

relevant offence arising out of the same circumstances) before

 

the expiration of the period of 14 days following the date of the

 

notice, and

 

(b)    

he may not be convicted of that offence (or any other relevant

 

offence arising out of the same circumstances) if before the

 

expiration of that period he agrees in writing to undertake the

 

community punishment in accordance with the notice.

 

(5)    

A notice under subsection (1) must give such particulars of the

 

circumstances alleged to constitute the offence as are necessary for

 

giving reasonable information of the offence.

 

(6)    

A notice under subsection (1) must also state—

 

(a)    

the period during which, by virtue of subsection (4), proceedings

 

will not be instituted for the offence,
