Filthy and verminous premises

The council will investigate reports of filthy or verminous premises. If it is necessary we will give advice to the occupier and any other responsible person and inform them of other agencies who may be able to help.

If the conditions are 'statutorily filthy' and pose a health risk or nuisance to the occupier or neighbours and the person responsible does not or cannot take remedial action, then a legal notice may be served to ensure that the necessary work is carried out.

To report filthy or verminous premises please call the council’s Environment Contact Centre on 01642 726001.
