Leisure and Environment Enforcement Policy pdf icon PDF 64 KB

In 2017 Scrutiny Committee investigated whether the Council’s policy on fly tipping was fit for purpose.  Scrutiny Committee recommended that the current enforcement policy required updating.  This report seeks approval of the Leisure and Environment Enforcement Policy.  A project group made up of officers from Legal, Environmental Health, Waste and Street Scene, IT and Communications have developed a policy that covers enforcement activities across the Leisure and Environment Directorate with enforcement schedules for Waste and Street Scene and Environmental Health that sit behind so giving greater detail on enforcement options available to the services.
