Pollution, noise and nuisance

You are here

Find out how we monitor and control air, noise and land pollution, including how you can report issues.

Allowing your house or car alarm to sound for a long period of time or on a frequent basis could constitute a statutory nuisance under the Environmental Protection Act 1990.
Noise from domestic entertainment such as stereos, radios and televisions can annoy, cause stress and generally affect the quality of life in a residential area. It is the biggest cause of complaints between neighbours.
How to manage problems with dust, odours and smoke
The Ipswich Contaminated Land Strategy explains how we implement our duties outlined in the Government's Contaminated Land legislation.
Ipswich Borough Council must, by law, regulate certain types of factory and other activities such as dry cleaners. This is to reduce any pollution they may cause and, in particular, to help improve air quality.
