Abatement Notices

We can advise and represent you in relation to challenging local authority Abatement Notices, Control Notices, Enforcement Notices, Remediation Notices. Where the local authority consider a statutory nuisance exists, which it alleges is prejudicial to public health or a nuisance, it can issue an Abatement Notices on the following grounds: due to the state of a premises; smoke being emitted from the premises; dust, steam, smell or other affluvia arising on industrial, trade or business premises; insects emanating from the premises; artificial light emitted from premises; and noise emitted from or caused by a vehicle, machinery or equipment in the premises.

Notices such as Abatement Notices can have a devastating effect on your business. Thankfully, they are often worth challenging either on technical grounds or upon the issue of reasonableness. However, our policy is to help you negotiate with the local authority in order to try to prevent the service of any Notice in the first place. Where Notices have been served, for example, prohibiting the use of plant machinery, we can apply to the Sheriff Court for you to try to have the order overturned on an interim basis.

We can also advise and represent you in relation to challenging remediation notices regarding contaminated land.

We can also defend you in relation to prosecutions brought under the Environmental Protection Act 1990. For example, prosecutions can be brought for alleged offences in relation to pollution, air control, waste management, and contaminated land.
