Service Plan - Our Role and Purpose 2012/13
Leicestershire County Council is the largest council in Leicestershire, providing a wide range of services directly to local people, or through other organisations on its behalf.
The overall aim of the Trading Standards service is to ensure a fair and safe trading environment, which promotes the well-being of citizens and allows businesses to prosper.
Our service priorities for 2012/13 are:-
- Over the next four years, implement a reduction in service levels in accordance with the Council’s Medium Term Financial Strategy
- Make better use of sources of information about trading practices to support ‘intelligence led’ enforcement
- Maintain access to the Service and sources of intelligence in the light of possible changes to Consumer Direct
- Contribute to the Council’s work on community budgets as it impacts on alcohol abuse, tobacco control and a reduction in levels of obesity
