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.
