The statutory nuisance procedure is a core legal procedure developed since the 19th century to deal with a wide range of housing and environmental problems. Councils receive several hundred thousand complaints about the issues covered every year.

Researcher in Environmental Health law, Tim Everett has been researching the effectiveness of the statutory nuisance procedure as part of his PhD. Tim’s thesis looks in detail at the law and draws on the views of practitioners across the UK, lawyers and others who have been involved with its use. His research looks at five years of complaints received by the various UK Ombudsmen about relevant issues.

In this webinar, Tim will share the results of this research and discuss ways of making more effective use of these provisions, as well as recommendations for legislative change.

CPD: 1 Hour
