The Neighbourhood Enforcement Team (NET) provides many of the services that affect how local residents feel about where they live and deals with issues such as crime, anti-social behaviour (ASB) and general nuisance.
The team comprises Environmental Health Officers, Enforcement Officers and Community Wardens and works closely with Thames Valley Police colleagues.
The NET is responsible for enforcing the law in relation to neighbourhood issues such as noise nuisance, pest control, fly-tipping, littering, stray dogs, and dog fouling, and receives in excess of 5,000 service requests each year.
We work closely with community groups to help enhance our neighbourhoods and have lead responsibility for implementing the council’s gating initiative.
The links to the left provide information about our work in each of the Wards.
Common alleyways and similar locations can attract crime and anti-social behaviour into a neighbourhood. We are therefore working closely with elected members and local residents to identify and restrict access to such locations through our gating initiative.
Please do contact us if you know of a location where gating might further help reduce the incidence of crime or, anti-social behaviour in your neighbourhood, on 01753 875255.
The Ward Page provides details of the gating projects considered and completed in your area.
The council recently launched a new food hygiene rating scheme to recognise and support businesses that have good levels of compliance and also identify those food businesses whose food safety standards need improvement. The Food Hygiene Rating Scheme is a joint venture between the Food Standards Agency and Slough Borough Council and you can check out the ratings of your local restaurant, for example, on the website at http://ratings.food.gov.uk/
You should also soon start to spot the Food Hygiene Ratings window stickers as shown on the right. A business can be given one of these hygiene ratings depending upon their standards for food safety.
If you have any queries about the scheme, please contact Ann Stewart, Food Team Leader at; firstname.lastname@example.org
