Environmental problems Tackle a noise problem

Noise from ventilation systems

Ventilation, air extraction and air-conditioning systems can be a nuisance to neighbours through noise disturbance, fume or odour problems.   

This applies to extraction units at catering businesses such as restaurants and takeaways but may also include extraction systems from a production plant at other commercial premises. You may require planning permission to install ventilation, air extraction or air-conditioning systems.
