Dust complaints

It is common for dust to be produced during demolition and construction works and vehicles moving on dry surfaces during the summer months. Industrial and commercial sites may be dusty and have the potential to adversely affect surrounding areas.

Some industrial operators may hold a permit to control emissions to air, including dust. These processes should not, in normal circumstances, cause a nuisance to residents and other businesses in the area.

There are simple solutions to reduce the potential for dust causing a nuisance. These include regular damping down of affected surfaces and equipment or screening the dusty operations from nearby receptors.

If you wish to refer a dust problem to us or you need advice on any matter relating to dust emissions, please contact us.
