Tackle Noise Disturbances With App

People in County Durham can now record and report noise disturbance via their mobiles

People in County Durham can now record and report noise disturbance via their mobile phones, thanks to an innovative new app.

Durham County Council has become the first local authority in the North East to use mobile phone technology in this way, having launched the Noise App.

Joanne Waller, the council’s head of environment, health and consumer protection, said: “The introduction of the Noise App provides residents with an additional way to get us evidence of the disturbance they are experiencing and allows our officers to provide a fast and efficient resolution to problems.

“The fact we have already been able to seize a sound bar, hi-fi system and speakers thanks to this app shows how valuable it will be in our efforts to protect our residents from excessive noise.”

The Noise App can be downloaded onto an iPhone or Android device via App Store or Google Play.
