This is a Call for Evidence to support a policy review of the noise regime under the Antisocial Behaviour (Scotland ) Act 2004 Part 5. The noise provisions which came into force in 2005 introduced a fixed penalty notice deterrent for domestic noise offences for any part of the day or night.

The regime is being reviewed with the objectives of ensuring that the implementing regulations and guidance remains fit for purpose.  The consultation runs till 25 August 2014.

I have also attached a flyer (PDF) which we are running in conjunction with Environmental Protection Scotland.  Places are limited and if you wish to attend please use the contact details on the flyer.

Please feel free to forward this email to others in your organisation.
