This session will enable environmental health practitioners to carry out WID more effectively by dispelling the myths around it and providing a constructive view of the law. This session will be in our new Bitesize training format and will assess the relevant statutory notices and case laws which prompt councils to undertake the work required. It will also explore the various avenues available when completing work in default and the various ways of recovering the costs once the work has been completed.
- Gain an understanding of the relevant statutory and case law
- Recognise when and how to use this power
- Learn how to recover the costs of WID
- Know how and why you can be challenged and how to make valid decisions that can be defended
Who should attend
These bitesize sessions will appeal to all newly qualified environmental health officers, housing surveyors and managers from both the public and private sectors.
