Newham Borough, located just five miles east of the City of London, has experienced huge amounts of regeneration and redevelopment over the last twenty years through government investment schemes for Newham and the surrounding boroughs.
Muhammad Islam, Senior Environmental Health Officer at Newham Council’s Noise and Nuisance team, explains: “The diversity within Newham Borough makes it a vibrant and exciting place to live.
However, like all boroughs, we have our challenges such as noise nuisance complaints – of which we get on average, around 155 a week from residents.”
To help obtain vital information and record concise and clear data to support noise nuisance cases, Newham Council has recently invested in two Trojan Noise Nuisance Recorders from Cirrus Research.
The Trojan helps local authorities and housing associations provide quick and accurate noise measurements to support noise nuisance cases and it is supplied in a discreet backpack, allowing the officer who installs the Trojan to leave with the same backpack, so as not to arouse the suspicion of neighbours.
