Unpleasant smell complaints

We can investigate complaints about unpleasant smells coming from commercial businesses, such as farming activities and cooking smells from restaurants and takeaways. If the smell is affecting the use and enjoyment of your property we may be able to take enforcement action.

Investigating smell complaints can often be difficult. We will need to establish how often the smell is occurring, at what times of the day, and how it is affecting you at home. We must also take into account the nature of the area. We may ask you to complete monitoring forms.
