Environmental guidance for your business in Northern Ireland & Scotland
A nuisance can be any action which interferes with people's use and enjoyment of land or property, or that could have a negative effect on health.
Causes of nuisances include noise, odour, smoke, artificial lighting and waste deposits.
You should make sure that you don’t cause a nuisance to your neighbours. If you are carrying out building work or have noisy processes, or if you create any other possible nuisances while carrying out activities you should provide contact details to neighbours, so if a problem arises it can be dealt with quickly.
Local council environmental health departments can stop your work or activities until a problem has been dealt with.
