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

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).
