The Environmental Health Team offers a service to Newcastle-under-Lyme's residents, traders and visitors to protect their health, safety and environment. This includes the air they breathe, the food they buy and their safety in the workplace, as well as helping businesses to succeed. We ensure that pests, refuse and noise nuisances are controlled.
Where possible we bring about behavioural change through education and advisory means but, where necessary, and in line with our enforcement policy, we use the legislative powers invested in us by the Council to ensure compliance.
Some of our work is required by statute, some intelligence led and we work jointly with many partners, both from within and outside the Council.
