The revised circular provides local authorities with guidance and tools for priority planning and targeting of their interventions. This will enable the local authority to meet the requirements of the National Local Authority Enforcement Code.
The circular can be located on RIAMS in the Local Authority Circulars folder under National Policy and Guidance. RIAMS subscribers can click here to view.
