ENV 5, ENV 5a and ENV 5b: Cost of trading standards and environmental health per 1,000 population
Summary definition

Cost of environmental health services per 1,000 population.

Why do we measure this?

Environmental health services are relatively small in terms of council spending, but they are important because they are designed to protect the public. A per 1,000 population measure has been used as a simple measure of comparing costs across councils.

Comparing costs across councils helps us identify where best practice exists so that other councils can learn from it.
