Following the Government’s announcement of a new ‘Cutting Red Tape review of Local Authorities’, led by the Cabinet Office and supported by DCLG and BIS, Anne Godfrey, Chief Executive of CIEH, said: 

"This latest red tape review announced by the Government presents us with a great opportunity to demonstrate that environmental health supports and helps business rather than being an unnecessary burden.

“We will now work with our members and stakeholders to submit a substantive response, emphasising the part that environmental health has to play in supporting good businesses to grow and protecting and improving the public’s health and wellbeing.”
