Statutory nuisance

Statutory nuisance

Claims of statutory nuisance can create tension between businesses and local communities, and create adverse publicity.

We have advised numerous industrial process and food production companies on the potential for statutory nuisance proceedings as a result of air quality issues, odour issues and noise.

The Environment Agency, Natural Resources Wales and Local Authorities all have the power to bring regulatory action on a company such as the service of an Abatement Notice, which can have significant operational impact.

We can help with:

  • Advice on the legality of such notices and the grounds of appeal
  • Manage the relationship between the business, local residents and the regulatory authority
  • Appeal enforcement notices
  • Advise on “best practicable” means and engage and appoint experts regarding technical solutions
  • Assist with putting in place suitable management systems to avoid any reoccurrences
