NOISY neighbours are being targeted this summer with the relaunch of Waveney District Council's 'out of hours' hotline for reporting noise nuisance.
Waveney's evening hotline enables residents to report incidents of noise nuisance to the council outside normal working hours.
It is available at weekends from May to September between 7pm and 1am on Fridays and Saturdays, and from 7pm to midnight on Sundays and Bank Holidays.
Principal environmental health officer Andrew Reynolds said: “Everybody has a different tolerance level to noise and too much can reduce a person's quality of life. And, of course, the problem can be worse in the summer as windows are opened, both by those creating the nuisance and those enduring it.
You may also want to watch:
“We depend on our neighbours to be considerate, but loud parties, barbecues, or simply turning up the stereo in the house so that it can be heard in the garden, can all adversely affect others during the summer months. The same applies to car stereos and entertainment noise from pubs, clubs and businesses.”
Some incidents will result in legal action being taken against the perpetrators. This ranges from the serving of an abatement notice to prosecution.
