Environmental Health Regulatory Service

Whether you are run a business, are an employee or a member of the public, we are committed to providing you with an efficient, courteous and helpful service and this document tells you how we aim to do that and what standards we will meet.

Areas we regulate

We deliver services in the following areas:

  • Environmental Protection
  • Food Safety
  • Health and Safety
  • Public Health
  • Animal Welfare

How we deliver our services

We make a fundamental contribution to the maintenance and improvement of public health, quality of life and wellbeing.

Our aims are to:

  • Protect the public, businesses and the environment from harm
  • Support the local economy to grow and prosper

We determine our activities by assessing the needs of local people and our business community, and considering the risks that require addressing. We do this through corporate consultation and through using data and other information available to the Council and its partners. In this way we ensure our resources are targeted appropriately, in the light of these local needs and of national priorities.
