Enforcement action

Enforcement action will only be considered where it is appropriate and proportionate.

All enforcement decisions will be made in accordance with our General enforcement policy (currently under review), Food law enforcement policy and Health and safety law enforcement policy.

Food sampling policy

General Enforcement Policy

One of our duties is to make sure that people and businesses meet statutory obligations and comply with the law on issues ranging from paying council tax, to litter, to the provision of safe food.

Our officers have law enforcement duties and can take action in the circumstances outlined in this draft General Enforcement Policy. This is your opportunity to look at the enforcement proposals and give your views. The consultation will run until Friday 15 June. Take part at live consultations.
