Services - Environmental Health
The Environmental Health Department administers the Councilís statutory functions in respect of a wide range of Environmental Health and associated legislation, including Food Control, Consumer Protection, Health and Safety at Work, Environmental Protection, Public Health and Licensing and Registration including Dog Control.
In addition to these statutory functions the Department provides a range of non-statutory services, including health education advice, advice to local businesses, public information and sampling and monitoring of recreational waters.
The Environmental Health Service Delivery Plan details our work plan for the year as well as Department objectives and targets. The Review of Variation from Environmental Health Service Delivery Plan details how we performed in the previous year. These and our target response times can be downloaded below.
The Council has a role in Emergency Planning. If an emergency arises which causes significant trauma to, or threatens the Health & Safety of the community the Council will provide appropriate support and assistance where this would be of benefit. This will be done by co-operating with other local service providers in support of the emergency services and where there is no clear lead authority will assume a co-ordinating role in a local emergency situation.
The department has an emergency out of hours contact no: 078 8970 7083.
