Environmental health enforcement policy

The Environmental Health Enforcement Policy sets out what business owners and others being regulated within the Horsham District can expect from enforcement officers in the Environmental Health and Licensing Department.

Our aim is to continually improve the health, safety, welfare and quality of life of people who live in, work in or visit the Horsham District. To achieve this, we use a variety of statutory powers and duties, which are enforced in an equitable, practical and consistent manner.

This is a general policy document and, where necessary, individual service areas will produce more detailed guidance on how and when enforcement action may be taken.
