This section deals with issues ranging from waste collection and recycling to monitoring of air quality and from pest control to investigations of noise complaints, all with the aim of protecting and improving Public Health and the environment in which the residents of the Rochford District live.
We wish to promote a green and sustainable environment.
The Council has recently developed and approved its Climate Change and Sustainability Strategy and its associated action plan – the ClimateCO2de.
The ClimateCO2de aims to improve natural resource efficiency both within Council operations and out in the community.
The District of Rochford is very fortunate to be blessed with a variety of spectacular and valuable trees.
Through various means of protection, the council aims to preserve and maintain a level of green amenity, for the present and future generations to enjoy and benefit from.
Use the link below to access a range of pest control advice leaflets that give some general advice and guidance on the most common pest problems, including ways to prevent infestations.
In addition we have advice leaflets on some common garden visitors such as badgers and foxes.
The Council supports the view that all animals have a right to life free from cruel treatment and unnecessary suffering. This Council cannot enforce or influence every aspect of animal welfare, but it does aim to detail those areas that the council considers important and where it feels it can have some influence as a responsible and representative public body.
