Bristol mayor supports appeal against late night noise

A campaign against late night noise in some of Bristol's high rise flats has received the backing of the city mayor.

Flats in Barton Hill, Lawrence Hill and Redcliffe were highlighted as problem areas in a survey last year.

So far, in the Redcliffe area alone, several hundred flats have been visited by council staff and police while also using flyers, posters and social media.

George Ferguson said 23:00 was "more than late enough for music or loud TV in residential areas in Bristol".

The council's Neighbourhood Working Co-ordinator, John Atkinson, said he believed residents were in favour of the campaign and had been providing addresses where noise was a particular problem.

"We are making sure we visit the identified problem addresses to talk to the residents so they are very aware of the impact of their noise and that the council are working with the Police in tackling noise nuisance across the high rise blocks in the patch," he said.
