Environmental Protection

The Council's Environmental Protection team deal with air quality and statutory nuisance, (including the monitoring and investigation, of noise and other pollution complaints) as well as providing a comprehensive pest control service. 

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

Statutory nuisance could include light, odour, smoke, dust and noise.
