Public Health & Regulation (Environmental Health) Enforcement Policy

This Enforcement Policy provides a proportionate and pragmatic approach to regulation in Adur and Worthing. This approach is robust with 'business as usual' and has proved to be resilient under the fast paced legislative requirements during the Covid-19 pandemic.

The policy sets out our overall approach of wise regulation for our businesses, communities and environment to ensure the health, safety and wellbeing of our communities, places and economy.

It also sets out a clear framework for all officers to inform their decisions, actions and communication when carrying out their statutory duties on behalf of Adur District and Worthing Borough Councils, which are separate legal bodies.

The main areas of work covered by this Enforcement Policy are:

  • Food Safety​
  • Health and Safety enforcement
  • Licensing​
  • Noise control
  • Pollution​
  • Dog control
