Council officers lecture at college
Petroc environmental health lectures hailed a success following informal partnership.
HOUSING and environmental health officers from North Devon Council have been giving a series of lectures at Petroc.
It is hoped the informal partnership can continue into 2012 following the “guest lectures” at the college in Barnstaple, to assist with the foundation degree course in Environmental Health, which is awarded by Plymouth University.
They covered a variety of issues, such as air quality, noise and planning, emergency planning, housing, contaminated land and statutory nuisance.
In exchange, the council gained academic research from the students into some of the authority’s areas of business.

Mark Hardwick at Petroc said the lectures were first class and well delivered: “The degree of insight and functional knowledge displayed by the team was greatly appreciated and very useful for our students,” he added.
Council Leader Councillor Brian Greenslade thanked the college and council staff who had worked hard on this project and were now looking at other ways to continue working together.
