A noisy neighbour has had their audio equipment seized after ignoring a number of warnings from Yorkshire Housing and Bradford Council. 

Residents in Great Horton complained to Yorkshire Housing and the council after getting fed up with loud music being played around the clock. 

Despite several joint visits from Yorkshire Housing and the council, the owners of the property continued to play loud music and were issued with a Noise Abatement Notice and a final housing caution from their landlord.  

Unfortunately, the tenant ignored both warnings, so with the help of Yorkshire Housing, the council obtained an order to seize their audio equipment to put a stop to the noise nuisance once and for all. 

Noise nuisance can have a detrimental impact on a person’s health and wellbeing, and it’s something Yorkshire Housing and Bradford Council take very seriously. 

“The disruption and upset caused by excess noise can have a real impact on people’s quality of life.


“Removing equipment is always a last resort and only carried out in the most serious circumstances that puts other customers at risk.  We work closely with our partners in the police and the council to tackle antisocial behaviour in our communities.  


“If you’re suffering from noisy neighbours, it’s important that you have a polite chat with them first about how it’s making you feel, but if it doesn’t stop, please get in touch with your local council. If you’re a Yorkshire Housing customer, you can also speak to us.” 

Emma Standing, ASB Enforcement and Tenancy Officer

The Housing Ombudsman has set out new guidance to housing providers on how to deal with noise nuisance complaints. The guidance recommends that housing providers have a clear and fair policy in place for dealing with noise nuisance, and that they work with other agencies, such as the local council and the police, to resolve the issue.
