Carry on business in a responsible manner with due regard to the B&B's immediate environment, particularly at unsociable hours and in relation to noise, odour, lighting, litter, uncollected waste or deliveries and collections.
Maintain building exteriors, outdoor equipment and grounds to create a positive visual impact within the community.
Introduce contingency plans for major incidents to reduce their environmental impact.
