Enforcement policy

Public Protection

What do we do?

Whether you are a local resident, a visitor or run a business in Wiltshire the Public Protection Service is committed to protecting your health, safety and environment, including the air you breathe, the products you buy and your safety in the work place. We are committed to providing you with an efficient, courteous and helpful service. 

We work with residents and businesses to bring about behavioural change through education and advisory means, but where necessary and in line with our enforcement policy, we use our legislative powers to ensure compliance. Most of our work is required by statute, and is intelligence led and we work jointly with many partners, both from within and outside the council, to maximise efficiency and to bring about shared outcomes and positive impacts for Wiltshire.

Some advice and services we provide are chargeable, and we will provide specific information in these cases.
