Enforcement - wall of shame
Our enforcement team is responsible for finding and prosecuting anyone carrying out illegal activities in the borough such as the dumping of rubbish in a public space, or leaving it on land without the owner’s permission.
What we do Toggle accordion
The council’s enforcement teams work with residents to take action against anyone who continues to behave anti-socially and unacceptably.
It brings together everything from environmental health and protection, to private sector housing licensing, noise and nuisance, and trading standards.
The council’s Regulatory Services deal with what is deemed as anti-social behaviour but are responsible for several different enforcement functions:
- trading standards
- food safety
- food standards
- health and safety at work

- private sector housing
- building control
- planning enforcement
- civil protection
- Estates Police Team
- Fraud Team
Each area uses different legislation to ensure compliance of the law within the borough and each has its own extensive body of regulations, codes of practices and guidance.
