Our newly commissioned research has revealed there were more than 19,800 noise nuisance complaints across the East Midlands last year with some surprising areas topping the noisy neighbourhood chart.
As we continue our quest to build up a noise nuisance map of the UK, we recently turned our attention to our fair Capital, London. As the statistics rolled in, it became clear pretty quickly that London was very different to the rest of the UK.
Cirrus has always been keen to follow trends on noise nuisance. We are heavily involved in this sector, so in 2015 we launched a campaign in to dig down to local level and see what the situation was like at the grass roots. Following campaigns in Yorkshire and the North West, our latest research has now unveiled a noise nuisance map for the North East.
Cirrus Research has been involved in an interesting project that looks at noise nuisance across the North West. Some of you might remember that we did a similar exercise last year for Yorkshire; this time around we went across the Pennines to see what kind of data we could retrieve from the Local Authorities there.
Noise nuisance complaints looks set to be one of the big community issues again of 2016. Local Authorities are having to budget ever more resources to policing the issue. This isn’t easy in these times of austerity. But how many noise nuisance complaints do they receive? We wanted to find out.
