Food safety and health & safety at work service plan

This Service Plan aims to meet the requirements of the Food Standards Agency (FSA) document "Framework Agreement on Local Authority Food Law Enforcement". The FSA regard this as an important part of the process to ensure national priorities and standards are addressed and delivered locally.
