These policies are intended to provide guidance for officers, businesses and consumers rather than to set down a prescriptive set of rules. Nothing in these policies should be construed as restricting the discretion of the Council to take legal proceedings or other enforcement action in cases where it is considered to be in the public interest. Anyone wishing to make comments about either policy is invited to write to Janet Faulkner, Group Manager, Warwickshire Trading Standards Service, using the address details to the right. These comments will assist us in the continual monitoring and annual review of the policies.
