Air extraction and air-conditioning systems

Ventilation, air extraction and air-conditioning systems are often a nuisance within the community. 

Poorly installed or maintained plant can be a nuisance to neighbours through noise disturbance or fume and odour problems.  This particularly applies to extraction units at catering establishments such as restaurants and takeaways but may also include extraction systems from production plant at other commercial premises.

You may require planning permission to install ventilation, air extraction or air-conditioning systems.
