Environmental problems Odour pollution

Odour pollution can come in many forms. It could be a day to day smell, for example from cooking at commercial premises, or one-off instances of petrol odours, gas, solvents etc. which may require immediate attention.

For many people, odours affecting the use of their property is a source of great irritation and stress.

Frequently, problems regarding odour can be resolved informally by politely explaining the problem to the maker and trying to come to a compromise. However, this informal approach may not always be successful.

If you are experiencing problems relating to gas or petrol these need to be reported immediately.

We cannot take action where odour is caused by cooking smells from a normal domestic property or by cigarette smoke travelling between properties.
