Additional noise nuisance patrols return

Operation Balsam, an out-of-hours service designed to combat neighbourhood noise nuisance, will be on-going until Saturday 1 October.

Uni of Herts staff, Herts Police staff & WHBC staff.

Working in partnership with Herts Police and the University of Hertfordshire, the initiative started on Saturday 24 September and aims to improve understanding within the community, including students, of the impact that antisocial noise can have on their neighbours. 

Additional noise patrols and an extended reporting hotline will be in place this week. If you are disturbed by noise during the week between 8pm - 12am or between 10pm - 2am at the weekend, you can call either our out-of-hours number on 0800 1114484 or the police on 101 and the team will visit to investigate. 

To report a noise nuisance during working hours any other time, visit our website or call 01707 357242.
