Environmental Protection

The Council's Environmental Protection team deals with air quality, noise and pollution related matters, including monitoring and complaint investigation, as well as providing a pest control service.  We also manage and promote the Thursday outdoor market.

We also authorise certain industrial processes, operate the Council's environmental monitoring system and review and assess local air quality.

Air Quality

The air quality in our area has improved over the last 40 years.


The Council operates an open air market on a Thursday each week.

Noise Nuisance

Noise can be a source of irritation and stress for many people and can even damage our hearing if it is loud enough.  Many of us are exposed to stressful levels of noise at home and at work.

Pest Control

Our Pest Control Team offers an efficient, professional and competitively priced service for a range of insects, rodents and other vermin.
