The prosecution has been taken out by Suffolk Coastal District Council.
The case was due to be heard at South East Suffolk Magistrates’ Court in Ipswich yesterday.
However, due to legal issues the matter was adjourned until June 26.
Spedeworth International, of Holybush Industrial Park, Aldershot, is likely to face four accusations.
