Your local authority has far-reaching powers to undertake investigations for regulatory breaches, against local traders, national companies and individuals.

These investigations typically cover issues such as environmental enforcement, fly tipping, building and planning control, food safety, education and health and safety offences.

Not only do they have the power to investigate you or your business; where they find regulatory breaches, they can and will launch civil and criminal investigations. In some cases these investigations can lead to civil and criminal prosecutions, with substantial fines and even custodial sentences a possibility.

While local authority departments have significant powers allowing them to investigate and prosecute local traders and businesses, they must not over-step their authority, or abuse your legal rights during the investigation process.
