Public Health deals with complaints concerning drainage issues
and refuse and it is estimated that the section will investigate
almost two hundred complaints about these issues this year. In
addition we also deal with complaints concerning properties which
may be filthy or verminous as well as exhumations of the deceased
should they be necessary.
Public health funerals
The Council has a responsibility to make arrangements for public
health funerals where no other person makes suitable
arrangements. A register of such arrangements that have taken
place since 1 April 2012 can be downloaded below. The register
will be routinely updated with details of any public health
funerals arranged by the Council.
