Consultation process

Consultation was undertaken initially as part of the LGR work streams.
The policy has been developed based on the good practice of other authorities, through information sharing at regional and national meetings.
A housing enforcement workshop was utilised to discuss the key points of the policy amongst all staff delivering housing enforcement.


As this is based on statutory legislation, consultation has been undertaken in house with environmental health and enforcement officers across the legacy council areas who deliver the service, in addition to other environmental health colleagues regionally and nationally.
