Eastleigh Borough Council is keen to get the views of local people, organisations and businesses on its future approach to enforcement.
The Council carries out a wide range of enforcement services to protect residents and businesses from illegal, unfair or antisocial practices, and to protect the environment.
Our draft Enforcement Strategy includes areas such as fly-tipping, food hygiene inspections, building regulations together with safety in the workplace and in privately rented accommodation.
Council Leader Keith House said, “We undertake many vital and important enforcement roles that help protect residents, businesses and the environment. I encourage local people to have their say and help us shape our future enforcement roles in the future.”
The Council aims to work with local people, organisations and businesses to inform them of their legal obligations. This can avoid and/or resolve problems without the need for expensive formal prosecutions. However, formal action will be taken if requests to follow rules are not carried out.
The consultation closes on 6 April 2020
