Enforcement policy

We believe that necessary, proportionate, effective and well targeted regulation is essential in promoting fairness, and in the protection of both the public and environment from harm. Good regulation and its enforcement act as an enabler to economic activity.

By complying with the enforcement policy we will promote efficient and effective approaches to regulation and enforcement which will improve regulatory outcomes without imposing unnecessary burdens on business, the third sector and other regulated entities.

Enforcement policies

The enforcement policy is intended to provide guidance for officers, businesses, consumers and the public. It does not affect the discretion of the council to take legal proceedings or any appropriate action where this is considered to be in the public interest.

This policy complies with Section 21 of the Legislative and Regulatory Reform Act 2006
