We investigate complaints regarding statutory nuisances and public health matters. These include;
The action we take will depend on whether a statutory nuisance exists. An example is an accumulation of rubbish that is damaging to health. Food waste or discarded mattresses would come into this category as it could attract rats to an area.
Inert matter such as bricks for example would not constitute a statutory nuisance.
If a statutory nuisance does exist the Council has several routes of action which it can consider.
If you do have any concerns then please contact us via the Worcestershire Hub on 01562 732928.
