Increasing enforcement activity is being taken by the borough council on the issues that matter most to residents.
Officers have been out in force to tackle littering and dog fouling with anyone caught committing an offence receiving a fixed penalty notice for £75.
The main focus was on Chester city centre during the run up to Christmas.
But teams will also be undertaking regular patrols in Ellesmere Port and other areas of the borough to tackle the issues.
Local Strawberry ward councillor Mark Henesy (Lab), cabinet member for community and environment, said: “We’ve listened to what residents have told us in recent consultations and our teams will be targeting the issues that people feel most strongly about - dropping litter and not picking up after your dog.
Fixed penalty notices
“This is not a one-off campaign, we will continue to issue fixed penalty notices to thoughtless individuals who spoil the environment for everyone else.”
Cllr Henesy continued: “Fixed penalty notices are needed because advice and warnings are no longer working.
“People commit these offences either out of habit or a total disregard for their local environment.
“It’s encouraging that officers have received so many positive comments from members of the public when they are seen out and about taking action against offenders.”
If full payment is not received within 28 days the borough council points out court proceedings will begin.
Last summer saw 12 successful prosecutions.
