Environmental Health covers a variety of services and enforces much of the public health protection legislation such as hygiene standards in catering establishments and safety in the workplace. This allows us a prime position within the authority of promoting lifestyle preferences which benefit public health.
In this section you will find information on the different types of requests that we are able to take action on, including rodents and insects, stray dogs, emissions of smoke dume or odour, overflowing or damaged drains, unsound food, ruinous dilapidated and vacant buildings, accumulations of waste and housing disrepair or poor living conditions.
As well as programmed inspection of businesses and residential premises, a proportion of the work undertaken is of a reactive nature.
