Chichester fights ‘nuisance noise’

Chichester District Council is joining local authorities across the UK to run a campaign to raise awareness of nuisance noise.

Thursday (27 May) was Noise Action Day and the council ran a display in the city with its environmental protection team.

The aim of the day was to make people aware of the noise they create and the effect it has on others, and to promote practical solutions to solve noise problems.

The most common complaints to councils concern music, barking dogs, domestic appliances, delivery vehicles and alarms.

Chichester Council said it receives between 650 and 750 noise-related complaints a year.
