Complaint Appeal Prevention of Damage by Pests Act 1949 Notice


England and Wales



Product code: Appeal006

Under Section 4, Damage by Pests Act 1949 a local authority may serve a notice requiring works to rid or prevent an infestation of Rats. Where such a notice seeks “structural works” the recipient of the notice may appeal by way of a complaint to a Magistrates Court.

The sample template is a complaint form which needs amending for your own specific grounds of appeal but should provide a good base to start from and is referred to in our article discussing the appeal procedure.
