non-residential noise complaints

Roedd y cais yn llwyddiannus.

To whom it may concern,

I am looking to source figures on noise complaints relating to non-residential and commercial premises through the Freedom of Information Act and I hope you may be able to answer the following questions for me:

1. How many complaints has the relevant department in your council received regarding noise disturbance from non-residential/commercial premises in the last 12 months?

2. How many noise abatement notices has the council issued in the last 12 months as a result of complaints of disturbance from non-residential/commercial premises?

3. In how many instances in the last 12 months has the council been granted an order to remove equipment from non-residential/commercial premises as a result of complaints regarding noise disturbance?

If you could provide the information requested via return email it would be greatly appreciated.
