Alarms and Noise

Burglar and Car Alarms

Burglar and car alarms causing a statutory nuisance can be silenced by action from a member of the Environmental Protection Team.

This may involve serving a statutory notice and obtaining a warrant to gain entry to the vehicle or property to allow the alarm to be silenced.

The costs can than be charged to the owner or occupier of the premises, or the registered owner of the car.

To avoid such action being necessary we would suggest that householders with intruder alarms register with Peace for a Pound.

Alarms not considered to be causing a statutory nuisance may still be dealt with informally.
