There are many possible reasons for conflicts with neighbours. A rise in traffic caused by your business, odour emissions or noise to name just a few. These conflicts can lead to serious clashes with your neighbours that have a negative effect on the productivity of your company. To prevent those effects, it makes sense to strive for a common solution with your neighbours.


Odour emissions:
In some companies the manufacturing process causes odour emissions that might be perceived as disturbing by the neighbours. This perception may cause dissatisfaction of the neighbours that lead to conflicts. For some of these emissions there might be technical solutions for their avoidance. But sometimes these solutions are so expensive that they would mean a considerable economic burden for the company. Some of the emissions are even unavoidable. Therefore, it is necessary to figure out a common solution together with the neighbours that is appropriate for everyone. A mediation might help to tone down the tension.


In some family businesses noise is part of the work of the company. Be it a noise that is caused by the manufacturing process or the noise that is part of running a pub or a discotheque. At the latter a fair share of the noise takes even place at night. Through soundproof construction a share of the noise can be minimized, but noisy drunk pub visitors that leave the pub onto the street can hardly be curbed acoustically. In these cases, it is necessary to search for a compromise with the neighbours to avoid long term tensions.


Delivery traffic:
Companies with a high rate of delivery have a lively delivery traffic. Strong traffic is hardly appreciated by the neighbours. The situation becomes especially difficult if parents perceive the delivery traffic as a risk for their children or there is a large number of heavy vehicles on the road. Heavy trucks take a larger toll on the road surface than cars resulting in increased demand for road maintenance. If the paving is not sufficient to carry heavy trucks, this results quickly in noticeable road damage. Therefore, a company would be wise to figure out solutions for their delivery traffic to avoid conflicts with the neighbours.


Competition for land:
Conflicts with neighbours might occur if a company is expanding its territory and a neighbour might feel overlooked as he had his own plans for the use of the newly added area or is unhappy with the way the area is used by the company. This kind of conflict can be solved in a mediation as well.
