Noise Pollution

The Noise App

The Noise App is a software application that can be downloaded from Apple and Android app stores.  The free application allows residents to record noise issues on their smartphone or tablet and then sends the recording directly to the City Council to investigate.

The new system means investigators can receive noise recordings almost immediately and act more quickly if the noise is particularly bad.

Once you have recorded the noise, forward the recording to

Out of Hours Service

You can report incidents of nuisance noise online via our report it form or email If you are reporting disorder in the street, drunken or rowdy behaviour this should be reported through to Thames Valley Police.
