Description: Environmental Enforcement

Environmental Enforcement

Unfortunately fly tipping, littering and dog fouling have become an increasing problem in recent years.

As part of the strategy to reduce these anti-social practices and protect our environment, Dartford Borough Council investigates these incidents whenever possible, issuing fixed penalty fines, and if necessary issuing prosecutions.

Statement of Environmental Enforcement Policy

The Local Authority has produced a Statement of Environmental Enforcement Policy which provides a framework for environmental enforcement by Dartford Borough Council (DBC) and to enable and assist Environmental Enforcement Officers in decision-making.

This policy highlights DBC’s responsibility to maintain a clean environment for all but recognises that this cannot be achieved without the support of the local community and the need for people to take personal responsibility for their actions.
