Public Health

The Environmental Health team use the provisions of the Environmental Protection Act 1990to investigate and take action to resolve public health nuisances including;

  • odours,
  • noise,
  • drainage problems,
  • insanitary premises, and
  • smoke and fumes etc.

Environmental Health Officers investigate complaints and enquiries to establish if the source of the complaint is causing a Statutory Nuisance. The officers have legal powers to prevent the nuisance occurring or continuing if the matter cannot be resolved informally.

Abandoned Vehicles

Officers from the Environmental Health team also deal with abandoned vehicles. Where the vehicle is confirmed abandoned, it will be uplifted and disposed of.

If a vehicle is causing road safety problems Police Scotland should be contacted on 101.

Otherwise abandoned vehicles can be reported using our Report It web page.

No Smoking Premises

More than 13,000 people die every year from the effects of tobacco, it is estimated about 1,000 of these people have never smoked during their lifetime. In the interests of public health no smoking premises are monitored by authorised officers from Community and Regulatory Services who may enter any no smoking premises to ensure compliance with the legislation.

If you wish to complain regarding smoking within no smoking premises, please contact us by email:smokefree@clacks.gov.uk or by telephoning 01259 450000.
