Noises and Smells

James Burton, Rose Grogan and Katherine Barnes provide a practical overview of the statutory and policy framework available to local authorities and others to address noises and smells.

The speakers discuss:

  • Criminal law tools, including offences under the Environmental Permitting Regulations 2016 and the Environmental Protection Act 1990 – Rose Grogan
  • Statutory nuisance tools under the Environmental Protection Act 1990 – Katherine Barnes
  • Other tools, including (i) “agent of change” planning policy principles and (ii) the potential monetary remedy offered by the Land Compensation Act 1973 where noise/smell is due to the use of “public works” – James Burton

In addition to outlining the substantive law, the speakers will also draw from their experience in this specialist field to address related procedural and strategic issues.
