We are responsible for investigating pollution and other environmental related problems on your behalf and if necessary take action against the individual or organisation causing the problem. We do this by working with organisations, communities and individuals in the wider community to protect the environment for the benefit of everyone.
Before reporting a problem, we would always recommend that you talk directly to the individual or organisation who is causing the problem. Mediation can also be very useful way of taking your own action to resolve the problem.
