What happens next?
If satisfied that a complaint of statutory nuisance is justified, Wyre Council must serve an abatement notice upon the person responsible, occupier or owner of the premises (as appropriate) requiring that the nuisance be abated.
Failure to comply with an abatement notice is an offence and legal proceedings may result. If the person were found guilty of an offence then they are liable to a fine of £5,000 plus other costs for a daily continuation of causing the nuisance. Where the offence is committed on industrial, trade or business premises, the maximum fine is £20,000.
