Noisy neighbours' targeted in Slough

Late-night "noise patrols" are targeting noisy neighbours in Slough.

The council said those caught making too much noise faced being issued with an abatement notice. Breaching one can result in prosecution.

Problems with noise normally increase during the summer when more people have doors and windows open and spend more time outside, the authority said.

Complaints reported in the area include dogs barking, loud parties and slamming doors.

Rhian Richards, senior environmental health officer, urged residents to be considerate towards their neighbours.

She said: "Let them know if you are planning party, take care while closing doors at night, especially if you share communal hallways or live in a block of flats, and avoid amplified music, particularly outdoors and at night."
