Nuisance and Noise Control: Important Supreme Court Judgment

Businesses that operate noisy or controversial activities, together with developers, should be made aware of an important Supreme Court judgment on the principles of private nuisance.

The case related to a noise nuisance caused by the responding party’s motocross and speedway stadium. The Supreme Court unanimously agreed with the appealing party (who lived near to the stadium) that the responding party’s use of their property was a nuisance.
