Odours and fumes
Odours and fumes generated by industrial premises are usually controlled by having systems in place to deal with the emissions . Problems can be created when unpleasant odours or fumes are released which cause a nuisance to residents in the area. Offensive odours can often be difficult to trace where there are many industrial or commercial premises in an area, such as an industrial estate. However, when making a complaint, it helps our investigation if you can identify where the fumes or smell is coming from.
During demolition and construction works, dust is often generated which can cause a nuisance to nearby residents. As well as looking unsightly, dust can prevent people using gardens and opening their windows. The best way of dealing with dust is by screening and damping down the area.
