A new app to help people deal with nuisance noise has been launched by Elmbridge Council.

The free app, which can be downloaded on smart phones, allows neighbours and businesses to record noise and write details about the disturbance as part of a noise diary.

The diary can then be shared with the council’s services investigating complaints of noise nuisance.

Ian Tucker, environmental health and licensing manager at Elmbridge Council, said: “I am delighted that we now have our very own Elmbridge app that can assist those suffering the effects of noise nuisance to simply gather the evidence my officers need.

“This app should act as a serious warning to those in our community who persistently create excessive noise.”
