Comment on review of enforcement policy

Published: Thursday 26th May 16

The council is reviewing its policy on how it enforces rules aimed at protecting local people.

The policy affects all enforcement work carried out by the environmental services department, including:

  • Food standards
  • Food hygiene
  • Health and safety
  • Licensing
  • Trading standards
  • Noise
  • Pest control
  • Air quality
  • Standards of privately-rented homes

Residents, businesses, landlords and other groups and public agencies are being urged to comment so their views can help shape the final document. 

Following the publication of the Regulators Code 2014 and a major review of the environmental services team, the policy is being revised to reflect the revised provisions in the code and a new service structure which now includes private sector housing.. 

The current policy and the proposed new one, plus an online survey, are available on the council’s website.

The deadline for comments is midnight on June 26.

Chetwode Road at the junction with the Chinese Restaurant is notorious for fly tipping for example. Perhaps enforcement officers may catch culprits there???
