Private action

Private action

Sometimes, we may not be able to action about noise or light that is causing you problems.

This could be because it is an intermittent or unpredictable problem that we have not been able to witness, or we may not feel that we are unable to take formal action.

You may wish to take your own private action under the provisions of Section 82 of the Environmental Protection Act 1990.

See our guide below about taking your own action against a noise or light nuisance.

If our documents are not accessible to you, you can request a different format here.
