Dust

Excessive dust caused by activities of commercial premises or building sites may result in a statutory nuisance with formal action required. Dust from domestic properties are not covered by statutory nuisance legislation.

Dust that is considered to cause a statutory nuisance is regarded as an offence under the Environmental Protection Act 1990.

The production of dust and how regular its production is may be determined as a statutory nuisance depending on the factors involved.

With one off events of dust that contribute to high amounts of dust may also be considered a statutory nuisance depending on any significant negative impacts on neighbours.

Environmental permits , including crushing of concrete, are required to be applied for to operate depending on the activity from us or the Environment Agency .

Though these activities are exempt from nuisance legislation, if dust is leaving the boundary of the premises the conditions of the permit are likely to be breached.
