Noise from commercial premises
The Environmental Protection Act 1990 restricts activities causing material interference with the use and enjoyment of neighbouring property by way of nuisance due to causes such as odour, noise, dust, smoke and light. Nuisance is something that affects day to day life where you live. It is not something which can be detected that is just different to normal or something that is just an annoyance. If you have a complaint to make about persistent nuisance from commercial or domestic properties please contact Environmental Health using our Contact Us form below. There is a significant burden of evidence associated with a local authority action under this legislation. Guidance to take your own private action is available below.
