Legal & Enforcement training

Environmental crime is a prevalent issue, impacting areas across the country.

Enforcement can be an effective action to tackle this problem. If managed properly, it can act as a successful deterrent and result in cleaner streets. If managed badly, it can lead to ill-feeling and negative publicity in the press.

Our courses steer you through the pros and cons of enforcement, helping you to tackle enforcement issues efficiently and tactfully while also cutting costs. This training is delivered by our legal expert, an experienced and practising solicitor with a strong background in environmental legislation and enforcement.

"Realistic mock court trial going through a very meaty case. The prosecution, defence and judge were very convincing! Made some of us squirm on the witness stand."

NEW COURSE - Litter from Vehicles Enforcement

Tackling litter louts who mindlessly throw rubbish from their vehicles can now be dealt with through new powers to impose Fixed Penalty Notices. This is a civil regime as the fine can be levied against the vehicle keeper. This course will clearly explain all the steps local authorities need to take to implement an effective strategy to carry out this important enforcement activity, as part of a broader approach in the plight to keeping our communities litter free.
