Neighbourhood pollution

Find out how we can help you with common neighbourhood pollution issues such as noise, light and odour.

For something to be considered a nuisance it usually has to affect health or cause other problems. Common examples include: 

  • barking dogs 
  • loud music from a pub or club 
  • unpleasant odours caused by industrial sites 
  • disturbing lights  

If we find that a nuisance exists, we can serve an ‘Abatement Notice’ to ask the person responsible to sort the issue. If they don’t obey the Abatement Notice, and don’t have a reasonable excuse, we can take them to court to face prosecution.
