Environmental Health Enforcement Policy

The Council's revised Enforcement Policy 2023 sets out the standards and guidance that will be applied by the Council when acting in its role as regulator in a number of areas, including: food safety; health and safety at work; licensing; environmental protection and environmental crime; housing standards and public health nuisances.

The council's aim is to ensure clear and consistent enforcement, which takes account of national guidance and good practice.

The revised enforcement policy has been drafted in line with the Regulator's Code and aims to ensure that any enforcement activity undertaken:

  • is fair, accountable, consistent, proportionate and transparent
  • makes effective use of resources through a risk-based approach
  • improves protection for the community and businesses
