Where an abatement notice1 has not been complied with, the local authority2 may, whether or not it takes proceedings for an offence3, abate the nuisance and do whatever may be necessary in execution of the notice4. In the case of noise emitted from premises5, the power to abate includes power to seize and remove any equipment which it appears to the local authority is being or has been used in the emission of the noise in question6.
Any expenses reasonably incurred by a local authority in abating, or preventing the recurrence of, a statutory nuisance may be recovered by it
