Odour Impact Assessments

Predominantly addressing odour management issues from sewage treatment works, we work with water companies, environmental health officers and the Environment Agency to mitigate the impact of odour emissions on the extent of developable areas.

We do this by working with industry specialists and leading odour sampling firms.

Initial conceptual air dispersion models based on typical odour emission rates for elements of the treatment process give an indication of the likely impact. If necessary, the typical odour emission rates are verified by onsite sampling.

We then negotiate the extent of permitted development that is unlikely to result in complaint by plotting odour contours.

Acceptance criteria are negotiated based on latest best practice arising from appeal precedents.
