Environmental enforcement

Enforcement activities are carried out in support of the Council’s statutory duties for the maintenance of the street scene and the visual amenity of the local environment.

The environmental enforcement team works in partnership with officers from streetcare, waste management, community safety, legal services teams and Avon and Somerset Police, to deal with individuals and organisations who commit crimes, which have a detrimental impact on the environment.

The types of crimes committed include fly tipping offences, waste presentation offences, street scene offences such as littering or fly posting and community anti-social behaviour offences such as breaches of public space protection orders (PSPOs).

Our partnership approach to environmental offences has resulted in the following successful prosecutions:
