A Londoner had suffered anti social behaviour and regular late night and day time amplified music from the occupier of a neighbouring flat for several months. The Council refused to visit during the daytime and despite clearly witnessing loud music late at night outside the property, declared that the noise was, 'not loud enough'.
The Client tried approaching the Social Landlord who owned the neighbouring flat, but again was told that the noise did not amount to a nuisance.
The Client carried out his own research and started proceedings in the Magistrates Court under Section 82 of the Environmental Protection Act 1990. Noisedirect was able to provide advice on Court procedures and collation of evidence. The Client produced his own acoustic evidence to play before the Court. The Defendant failed to appear at Court. The Court found in the favour of the Client and granted an Order for the Council to serve an Abatement Notice.
