The recently opened KFC branch on Plumstead High Street has been fined on three occasions since opening.
Two fines and £400 and one of £100 have been levied for disposal of rubbish.
Plumstead High Street is part of a wider £5.2m project though there are concerns about how long any improvements will last.
I covered what that project covers last week.
This move should help keep businesses in line, though whether it’s just pre-election action that falls away remains to be seen.
Deep cleaning of the High Street has been ditched by the authority.
