Odour complaints predominately relate to either agricultural activities or industrial processes. In both instances a one off is unlikely to amount to a nuisance. Odour from domestic premises cannot be investigated under Statutory Nuisance legislation (however, if odour is an underlying problem due to animals kept in such a way etc then this can be looked at by the Pollution Team). Download the Odour leaflet for details of our complaint procedure.
Fumes and gases complaints (for domestic premises only – for businesses etc specific legislation exists) can be dealt with under the Statutory Nuisance provisions.
Dust complaints (business/commercial premises only, this includes contractors working on domestic property) can be dealt with under the Statutory Nuisance provisions. Download the Dust Factsheet for details on our complaints procedure.
