Environmental health

Please read our Environmental health service update following the coronavirus.

Environmental health provides a wide range of services aimed at protecting residents, visitors and the environment. We all want to live and work in an environment that is safe, pleasant and attractive.

While it is important for people to enjoy themselves, it is also important that safeguards are in place to ensure our communities are peaceful, our work places safe and the services that we buy are properly run. This includes areas such as, food safety, noise pollution and pest control.

The main duties of the Commercial Team at East Hampshire District Council include:

  • dealing with complaints and enquiries about health and safety issues
  • health and safety enforcement where breaches of the Regulations are found
  • investigating accidents at work.

Getting in touch

You should only contact the council after you have tried all reasonable efforts to resolve the issue with the person or organisation responsible first.

A polite explanation why the issue is causing a problem and request to remove it is generally effective.
