Environmental health and pollution

Our role is to identify, monitor, reduce and prevent pollution of the environment as well as to protect the health of those who live and work in Newcastle upon Tyne.

We monitor air quality, inspect and permit industrial processes, assess potentially contaminated sites, enforce housing standards and provide advice and information on environmental protection issues. 

Our officers investigate complaints about noise, smoke and other nuisances, waste crime, pollution, dogs and the condition of rented housing, and take enforcement action when necessary.
