We have introduced an alternative method of sending information about anti-social behaviour and noise nuisance to us if your case is being investigated by the Neighbourhood Enforcement Team. If you have an Android or iPhone you will now be able to record the noise that is effecting you and send it directly to the investigating officer from your phone as the noise occurs. The ‘Noise App’ is available to download free of charge and will guide you through the installation process. For further information please visit the The Noise App website or speak to the Neighbourhood Enforcement Officer who is dealing with your case.
