Environmental problems Dust and grit

Dust and grit from construction sites

Dust and grit can often be a source of irritation for residents when interfering with the use of individuals property. Common complaints relate to dust and grit arising from construction sites when renovation work is taking place.

We advise that you contact the company causing the issue directly to see if a resolution can be found informally.  However, where this is not possible or it is ineffective you should contact us.

We will investigate complaints relating to dust and grit arising from constructions sites, commercial premises and domestic properties.

We are able to serve a Statutory Nuisance Abatement Notice if the problem could cause a health risk or nuisance.  Failure to comply with a Notice is an offence and legal proceedings may result.
