What is Environmental Nuisance?
If a certain aspect of a business in your local area is interfering with your enjoyment of your land whether through excessive noise, bad odours, vermin, or flies, this will be classed as an environmental nuisance.
The types of businesses involved in environmental nuisance claims are often factories, land fill sites, sewage or water treatment works and composting sites which are usually located in urban areas.

Often during environmental nuisance claims it becomes apparent that other members of the community have also been affected. As a result, a group action is then brought forward to ensure that all those affected can have their voices heard. Farleys have extensive experience of group actions for environmental nuisance.
