Albert Manley, Jennifer Manley v New Forest District Council: Admn 29 Jul 1999

A house owner gained permission to run a dog kennel. It grew and eventually the authority served a notice claiming it to be a statutory nuisance because of the noise. The defendants appealed asserting they had used the ‘best practicable means’ to reduce the noise.
Held: It was not within the section to require such a business to move, although the expansion of a business was relevant.
