Increases in the volume of complaints about noise nuisance have been compounded by the time it takes to bring a resolution. Many local authorities have problems in investigating complaints adequately, due to shortages of suitably qualified and experienced environmental health officers.
The difficult regulatory climate facing local authorities means that skills in investigating complaints are in short supply. Using the various powers in different pieces of legislation more effectively will be a key theme of this interactive workshop. Examples of good practice in dealing with noisy parties, neighbour noise, public nuisance and commercial nuisance will be considered.
• Develop and broaden your skills in regulating noise nuisances
• Improve your knowledge of good practice and the use of statutory provisions relevant to noise, particularly statutory nuisance and anti-social behaviour legislation
Who should attend:
• Experienced environmental health officers dealing with noise nuisances
• Manager and specialist noise officers looking to develop and refresh their skills in dealing with noise nuisances
CPD: 6 hours
