Dear Cllr Ioannou,
RE: MEQ 29936 – Noise Nuisance (Van being used as a workshop)
Thank you for your enquiry on behalf of your constituent Ms XXXXXXXX.
From my understand they are being disturbed by a neighbour working from a van on the public highway, which they have converted into a workshop.
This would be dealt with in the same way that we deal with noise from within a dwelling. Therefore, we would need to make an assessment of the noise from within the complainants property, to determine whether a statutory nuisance exists.
I did visit the location every day last week at alternative times, to try and speak with the resident concerning the complaint, however, I never saw anybody carrying out any works from a vehicle parked in the street on those occasions.
Should this activity be ongoing, please can the residents make a formal complaint to our Business Support Team @Environmental Crime, so we can commence our procedure for investigating such complaints.
