Powys boasts some of the most beautiful scenery and livable communities in the British Isles, and Powys County Council is helping to keep it that way. This section of the site deals with the Council's environmental services and responsibilities, which are split between several departments.

Several departments deal with environmental issues in Powys. These include the Recreation and Countryside department and the Environmental Health department.
The Environmental Health Division provides a wide range of services aimed at protecting residents, visitors and the environment. Many of these services involve a regulatory activity but the majority are educational and advisory.
Much of the work includes enforcing laws and encouraging good practice. In many cases we work closely with other organisations, such as the Environment Agency or Food Standards Agency.
