Environmental Better Regulation Act (Northern Ireland) 2016

Section 14: Interpretation

Section 14 defines terms used in Part 2. The section includes a definition of “premises”.  The definition makes it clear that “premises” includes any land, vehicle, vessel, aircraft or hovercraft, and any tent or moveable property.  However, it is an inclusive definition so, in addition to the things listed, the term bears its ordinary, natural and literal meaning and would, therefore, include a wide range of houses or buildings including residential premises.
