When investigating complaints, responding to service requests, carrying out inspections, reviewing and granting licences and undertaking proactive project work, Newcastle City Council will follow the principles laid down in the Regulators Compliance Code. This enforcement policy follows the principles of the code as we aim to prevent risks to public health, statutory nuisance, anti-social behaviour, environmental crimes, unfair competition and trading which is detrimental to consumers and business.

The Policy provides guidance for officers, businesses and members of the public on the principles and processes which apply when enforcement action is considered or taken.
