Policing Update:

Weekly crime summary 3 – 9 June 2015

Noise related Anti-Social Behaviour disputes

We always see an increase in calls as the weather warms up regarding noise related anti-social behaviour, often caused by the conflicting use of outdoor spaces and neighbour disputes as people enjoy the outdoors with BBQs and gatherings in the garden.

Speaking to neighbours before holding a party or BBQ to pre-warn them and give them a time you expect to finish can save a falling out later. Please remember people will have windows open due to the warm weather so any noise created can feel much worse for those trying to sleep.

If you are disturbed by your neighbours causing excessive noise the most appropriate authority to report this too is the Environmental Health Department on 01493 330 369, who are best suited to advise you on the issue.
