Judgment: Westminster Council Loses Appeal Against Noise Abatement Notice

We're waiting for Mrs Carrabino to read a recent response and update the status.

Dear Westminster City Council,

Could you please forward to me the judgment handed down in Westminster Magistrates' Court in June 2018 in which the judge found against Westminster Council.

The judge upheld an appeal against a noise abatement notice for an alleged statutory nuisance created by the playing of ‘loud amplified music and speech’ at a domestic property. The Council lost its case in Court for several reasons including:

i) not having noise recordings; and

ii) the requirements of the notice were unreasonable in that they interfered with the Appellant’s right to family and private life.

Yours faithfully,

Mrs Carrabino

Westminster City Council

Dear Westminster City Council,

I would be grateful if you could please conduct an internal review of this decision to refuse my information request. The information requested must be in the Council's possession as it would have been sent to the Council directly from the Court. Furthermore, the document should be very easy to find as it is a recent case and a very distinctive one.

Yours sincerely,

Mrs Carrabino
