Entertainment and leisure activities
Noise from pubs, clubs, restaurants and places of entertainment can sometimes disturb people living in close proximity. Sources include:
- noise from amplified music
- externally mounted plant and equipment e.g. refrigeration plant, air conditioning units
- outdoor areas used by customers e.g. balconies, smoking areas
- deliveries and taxis.
Complaints will be dealt with using the statutory nuisance powers and in the cases of licensed premises consideration will be given to any breaches of licensing conditions.
Noise from leisure and sporting activities such as clay pigeon shooting, and motorbike scrambling can sometimes cause problems to local residents. We deal with these matters using the statutory nuisance powers and we also work with organisers of such events to try to minimise the impact.
