Enforcement and private sector housing policies

Community safety and enforcement policy, private sector housing enforcement policy.

We are responsible for ensuring that residents, businesses and visitors comply with environmental health legislation and standards.

The objective of these policies is to inform residents and businesses what they may expect from enforcement officers and the decision-making framework which will apply in deciding what, if any, of its powers to exercise in enforcing the provisions of the law.

Using enforcement powers effectively is a key part of the council’s strategy to tackle environmental issues that impact neighbourhoods.
