Avoid A Possible Conviction When You Soundproof At Home

As the issue of noise has become a growing concern in the UK, so the punishments handed out by local authorities have become stricter and stricter. Anti-Social Behavioural Orders (ASBOs) are now given readily to persistent offenders, whilst others have had their possessions taken away from them and several have been issued with community service, or in some cases, sent to prison.

The UK population continues to grow at a rapid rate so it is understandable that the level of noise as a consequence has grown with it. The amount of cars, buses, motorbikes, taxis etc. has increased, as has air and rail travel.

To help accommodate these growing numbers of people, housing has also substantially increased so as you can imagine millions of people are living within very close proximity of one another….

Elderly Neighbour Given ASBO For Causing Excess Noise

Noisiness between neighbouring homes has become a growing problem in the UK. When you hear stories about noise-related disputes you automatically presume that the issue has been caused by people of a young age, however this is not necessarily the case!

An 87 year old woman in Hampshire has been handed with an ASBO (Anti-Social Behaviour Order) after being found guilty of causing severe disruption over the past 13 months. Georgina Sims was reported by her neighbours for playing loud music on her radio and banging her walking stick on the wall to try and drown out ringing in her ears caused by tinnitus.
