Shared Regulatory Services Joint Committee

Purpose of committee

The Shared Regulatory Service is a partnership between Bridgend Council, Cardiff Council and the Vale of Glamorgan Council. The partnership is governed by a Joint Committee, which is equally represented by Cabinet Members and Public Protection Committee Chairs from each Council.  The aim of the partnership is to deliver more efficient, cost effective services, increasing the resilience of Trading Standards, Environmental Health and Licensing across the region.

Trading Standards promote, maintain and ensure a fair and equitable trading environment whilst protecting the interests of consumers and local businesses. 

Environmental Health promote and protect the health, safety and wellbeing of the public through the provision of advice, regulation and enforcement in accordance with national and local policy.

The Licensing Service is responsible for the licensing of a wide variety of activities, events and services, most of which we encounter in our day to day life.  Licensing upholds a high standard to protect the public by ensuring licence holders are fit and proper persons to carry out the licensing activity and to set and maintain standards expected of licence holders. 

The Shared Regulatory Joint Committee is administered by the Vale of Glamorgan County Borough Council.  However the Agenda and Minutes can be viewed.
