Abatement notice definition

What does Abatement notice mean?

A statutory notice requiring a specified activity to cease, or certain improvements to be implemented.

Where a local authority is satisfied that a statutory nuisance exists, or is likely to occur or recur, in its area, it shall serve an abatement notice on either the person responsible for the nuisance or, in that person's absence, the owner or occupier of the premises (Environmental Protection Act 1990, s 80). The abatement notice will impose specific requirements on the recipient with timescales, to abate the nuisance or prohibit or restrict its recurrence, and may specify further steps that are necessary to achieve this.
