As well as noise, our service investigates complaints about other forms of pollution, including smoke from bonfires, smells and fumes from car paint spraying.

Next steps

We can take formal action if we find evidence of a statutory nuisance.

If the problem does not stop or it is not reduced, we can serve a legal notice (an abatement notice) on the person responsible telling them that they are committing an offence if they ignore the notice.

If this doesn't work, the person responsible may be taken to court and fined up to £5000 for domestic premises and £20,000 for commercial premises.
