Reporting nuisances

We investigate nuisance complaints such as smoke and odours from neighbouring premises.

We investigate these complaints to determine whether they amount to a statutory nuisance. If we consider that a statutory nuisance exists, and the person causing the problem is unco-operative, we have powers to take formal action and refer the matter to the courts.

It must be recognised that not all accumulations constitute a nuisance and there will be many instances when we cannot offer any assistance.
