Welcome to the Environmental Agency Website
The Environmental Agency was formed in July 1995 from the Environmental Health Department. Previously known as the Public Health Department it had its origins in the Sanitary Commissioners who were founded in Gibraltar in the early 19th Century and constructed the water supply and sanitation systems.
The City Council of Gibraltar also originated from the Sanitary Commissioners. The Agency is now responsible to the Minister for the Environment and plays an important role in delivering the environmental policies of the Government of Gibraltar. The Agency is also responsible for the enforcement of a number of Environmental and Public Health legislations. It is headed by the Chief Environmental Health Officer who together with Environmental Health Officers, Assistant Environmental Health Officers, Pest Control Operatives and administrative staff ensure that the Agency's responsibilities are met.
