Each year the Environmental Health Section deals with around 6000 requests for services covering a wide range of topics from Antisocial Behaviour to Zoonotic Diseases. We also carry out periodic audits and inspections of different types of premises and enforce legislation relating to illicit tipping and dog fouling.
As well as enforcing legislation we offer advice and training to all members of the community.
Many areas of Environmental Health are well known, especially following the BBC series 'A Life of Grime'. However, the team gets involved in a wide range of activities that you may not have thought of.
