Noise pollution is a serious issue for hundreds of thousands of people living in the UK every year. For the sufferer it can cause disruption, interference and irritation and in some cases lead to the development of stress and loss of sleep. So maintaining the comfort and well-being of people in their own homes is important. Not just to protect the human rights of the occupants but also to help sustain a happy, healthy and productive society.

Noise Survey Results
Our noise survey revealed some interesting information about the numbers of noise complaints being recieved by local authorities. We asked each local authority in the UK how many noise complaints they received, how much enforcement action they took and about officer staffing levels. In our full report we will compare the data received to national indicies. The analysis is yet to be completed but we can provide some preliminary findings and regional data. Register your interest in the report using our contact form. In the meantime, view the regional data here.
