One of the common complaints I receive is in regard to neighbours from hell or noisey or anti-social neighbours. Predominently from the private rented sector.
As a Councillor I sought to introduce on the spot fines for noise nuisance but the cost at the time was prohibitive. It requires extra staff 24/7. More than a small District authority can afford particularly now with 27% cuts. Of course a lot more can be done and there is a wide ranging debate on current law, policing and partnership working with local authorities
However advice is at hand via the internet.
