A NOISY neighbour had her television and speakers seized after continuing to disturb other residents with loud music even after ignoring previous warnings.

The woman, from Bright Street, Radcliffe, had left her neighbours sleep deprived by playing loud music during daytime and evening hours.

She ignored previous warnings to turn the music down until eventually Bury Council officers obtained a warrant to enter her home and seized all noise-making equipment including two large TVs and two speakers.

Councillor Alan Quinn, cabinet member for the environment, climate change and operations, said: “People have a right to live in peace, and we will continue to take action against those who ignore our warnings and cause disruption to their neighbours.”

Prior to the equipment being seized, an environmental health officer had been monitoring the noise coming from the woman’s address

The recordings showed an inconsistent pattern of loud music which left residents sleep-deprived, anxious and unable to relax in their own home.

The woman, who cannot be named for legal reasons, had ignored previous warnings about her behaviour from the council’s neighbourhoods enforcement team and continued with her disruptive behaviour.

The equipment will be retained for 28 days, and only released when the woman pays the costs incurred from the seizure.

If the noise nuisance continues the council says it can carry out further seizures of equipment and may prosecute the persons responsible.
