The main concern with odour is its ability to cause a response in individuals that is considered to be objectionable or offensive. Individual perception to annoyance may vary greatly from person to person and if the odour is considered to be offensive, this could potentially lead to complaints.
The latest UK guidance on odour was published by the Institute of Air Quality Management (IAQM) in 2018. The IAQM guidance sets out assessment methods which may be utilised in the assessment of odours for planning applications. It is the only UK odour guidance document which contains a method for estimating the significance of potential odour impacts.
