Environmental Health

The Council’s Environmental Health team is dedicated to ensuring that the residents and visitors to Invercargill area can enjoy a safe and healthy lifestyle. The service is promoted through education, consultation, monitoring and planning in response to present and future needs of the community.

The team works to improve the health and quality of life through initiatives and regulatory services, and aims to ensure the Council’s statutory responsibilities are met in these areas:

  • Alcohol Licensing
  • Camping Grounds
  • Food Safety
  • Hairdressers
  • Healthy Homes
  • Funeral Directors
  • Noise
  • Overgrown sections

What’s ahead?

Beauty therapy treatments can affect people’s health if operators lack good hygiene processes and methods for different procedures. If basic hygiene processes and procedures are not followed, customers could be subjected to staphylococcus, fungi, viruses and even possibly Hepatitis. The Council is working with other agencies to find the best ways to educate and regulate these businesses and operators. We will keep you informed on progress.
