The purpose of the Public Health & Regulation Team Enforcement Policy is to detail the process all officers will use when deciding what action to take when carrying out their statutory duties on behalf of the Public Health & Regulation (PH&R) Team.

Whilst it is understood that it is primarily the responsibility of individuals and businesses to ensure compliance with relevant legislation, the Council will help them, where possible, to understand their legal responsibilities.

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

  • Food Safety​
  • Health and Safety enforcement

  • Dog Control

The policy is being updated and will be open to public consultation for 6 weeks commencing 9th March 2020 until 17th April 2020.
