The Public Health service aims to protect the public from nuisances and risks to health arising from irresponsible dog ownership, pest infestations, anti-social behaviour and recreational water.
From the 1st April 2015 the pest control service will cease to all non-Council owned premises and to facilitate this no new pest control jobs are being taken from Monday 23rd March 2015
Advice is available on the responsibilities for dealing with defective or blocked private drains, private sewers or septic tanks. Where neighbours or other parties are unwilling to co-operate to resolve the problem amongst themselves, the Section can serve notices obliging those responsible to take remedial action.
