Council Announces Enforcement Rule Change

Friday December 21 2012

CHANGES will be made to the council's enforcement structure which will see complaints like littering and dog fouling dealt with by a central team.

The changes will come into effect in April and are expected to save the authority £100,0000.

It will mean that the council's front-line enforcement officers will be given training to deal with everything from dog fouling, littering, and fly-tipping to car parking.

The new unit will also look at planning enforcement, housing enforcement and antisocial behaviour - rather than them being dealt with by different departments.

A council spokesman said: "The creation of the new unit will benefit the borough and its residents by delivering a coordinated and consistent approach to enforcement across the borough, removing duplication as well as an increase in the productivity of frontline enforcement officers by ensuring they are able to use a range of enforcement powers.”
