April 2014 – Written Question – Noise Complaints

by Nigel Bakhai on 30 April, 2014

Question

How many complaints about noise were investigated in the last year and how many of these have resulted in action against the perpetrator to date?

Answer

8,908 requests for service were received and processed.

Enforcement notices serve 116

Premises Closure order 1

Prosecution – 1

Anti-Social Behaviour Injunctions 1

Visits to perpetrators (to discuss their behaviour) Approximately 1,126

Letters to perpetrators (requesting behaviour change) – Approximately 4,209

The data provided is for the period 1 April 2013 to 31 March 2014. These figures describe the outcomes for cases where noise was the only aspect of the complaint. They do not include outcomes where noise was only one facet of a complaint (e.g. Anti-social behaviour, where combined action would have been taken under other legislation). Action may also be taken by other agencies (e.g. social landlords to enforce the terms of their tenancies based upon evidence provided by the Councils noise team).
