Consultation on Environmental Health and Public Protection Service Enforcement Policy
The Council's Environment Health and Public Protection Service is consulting on a revised Enforcement Policy 2023 which, once adopted, will be used when making enforcement decisions.
The policy sets out the standards and guidance that will be applied by the Council when acting in its role as regulator in a number of areas, including: food safety; health and safety at work; licensing; environmental protection and environmental crime; housing standards and public health nuisances.
The council's aim is to ensure clear and consistent enforcement, which takes account of national guidance and good practice.
The revised enforcement policy has been drafted in line with the Regulator's Code and aims to ensure that any enforcement activity undertaken:
- is fair, accountable, consistent, proportionate and transparent
- makes effective use of resources through a risk-based approach
- improves protection for the community and businesses
We want to know what you think about the new Policy before we adopt it. The draft revised enforcement policy can be viewed below as well as other supporting documents. The previous policy from 2014 is also available
If you would like to comment on the draft policy please email firstname.lastname@example.org or you can write to us at Environmental Health, Cannock Chase Council, Beecroft Road, Cannock, WS11 1BG. For more information or if you would like paper copies of the documents please call 01543 464202.
The consultation closed on 5 May 2023.
