Can I make a noise complaint without giving my details?

If you want to make a complaint you cannot remain anonymous because in order to determine if the noise is a nuisance we have to know who the noise is affecting and how it is affecting them.

We will, of course, keep your details confidential in the initial stages of the investigation. However, if you want us to resolve a statutory noise nuisance for you, and we need to take legal action to do it we may have to disclose your personal details. For example, if we serve a Noise Abatement Notice the person causing the noise nuisance will have a right to know who made the complaint if they decide to legally appeal against the Noise Abatement Notice in court. Similarly, if a case goes to the court you may be required to give evidence.
