Reporting nuisance behaviour (Noise, smoke, light, smells, waste in gardens, animals, defective premises, dust, fumes, gases and insects)
There are many behaviours and activities that can be described as a nuisance, however legal action can only be taken when this causes unreasonable interference with a person’s use or enjoyment of property or they are damaging to health.
If a crime is being committed, then you need to report it to Humberside Police.
On this page you can report the following:
- Smells and odours
- Defective premises
- Fumes and gases
- Waste in gardens
- Noise complaint
We have recently launched a new customer portal called MyNelincs. As part of this we have a new nuisance report form that covers smoke, light, smells, animals, defective premises, dust, fumes, gases and insects.
To make a nuisance report for one of these issues you will need to create a MyNelincs account and complete a Nuisance report form.
