Statutory Nuisance, 4th edition

Local Government
Statutory Nuisance 4th edition

Robert McCracken QC, Gregory Jones QC, James Pereira QC, Daisy Noble

Guiding you through each step, Statutory Nuisance takes you from initial assessment of a potential nuisance, through document drafting to the magistrates' court and beyond to the higher courts.

Clear, readable and user friendly this book provides lucid explanation, practical guidance and the primary materials needed in court - all in one handy volume. Accessible to the layman, yet illuminating to the experienced practitioner, this title expresses a view on the issues not yet resolved by the courts.

The new 4th edition covers the significant legislative changes such as:

  • The Anti-Social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014
  • Coventry v Lawrence [2014]
  • Lorna Grace Peires v Bickerton Aerodromes Ltd [2016]
