This work provides a definitive account of the subject for those working in the field (legal practitioners and environmental health professionals), and also practical guidance on putting the law into practice. Both authors have run training courses on this subject for a number of years, and they incorporate the checklists, precedents, etc that they have developed for those courses into the book. The law of statutory nuisance deals with acts of local pollution - such as noise, odours, and the state of premises - which are unhealthy or a nuisance. It covers the law and procedure involved when statutory nuisances are investigated and dealt with by local authority environmental health officers and the court proceedings which may follow. It also covers the procedure when a private person or community group takes action on their own account against the 'nuisance offender'.
