Reporting a noise nuisance or student anti-social bahviour
What we can help with
If a member of the public contacts BU re a public student complaint (noise, litter etc) BU is only able to directly deal with the issue if it is related to student halls.
If the issue is not related to student halls then in the first instance it must be dealt with by the Environmental Health (EH) as the first step and the resident must contact the EH themselves so that the incident is logged appropriately.
Community Enforcement Officer
In Bournemouth, BU funds Matthew King, the Community Enforcement Officer for the Winton East, Wallisdown & Winton West and Queens Park Wards.
Matt works in partnership with the police, universities, student unions and residential forums and residents can contact him on 01202 451491 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
01202 451491 is a dedicated telephone line available to report things such as disturbances, untidy properties, unsafe private rented housing conditions, bins on pavements, letting boards and any other issues affecting the amenity of the local environment.
Out of hours service
The out of hours noise service is also available on 01202 451491 (it transfers across). BU part funds enhanced out of hours support so that on certain nights a team member can respond to disturbances. The team also carries out proactive monitoring of hot spots where multiple complaints are received. If there is the possibility of a Statutory Noise Nuisance, then Environmental Health can monitor and issue Noise Abatement Notices.
