Part of Council’s regulatory role is to promote, protect and improve public health in the district. There is a close relationship between people and the environment. What happens in the environment can have an adverse effect on our health.
Council’s Environmental Health Officers actively identify issues and assess the health risks related to food businesses, hairdressers, camping grounds, funeral directors, offensive trades, stock sales yards, nuisances and many issues relating to the management of private properties and commercial activities to protect public health of the surrounding community.
