Keep Britain Tidy found that 1/4 of people in England admitted to being a noisy neighbour – playing loud music, letting their dogs bark all day, arguing and shouting at the top of their voices.
In July 2006, Keep Britain Tidy launched an eye catching campaign featuring a tea cup and a piece of cake together with slogans ‘Neighbourhood noise can just be a storm in a teacup’ and ‘Solving neighbourhood noise can be a piece of cake’ was aimed to encourage people to speak to their neighbours and solve any issues before they escalate into a dispute with authorities involvement.
As part of the campaign a new website was launched www.noiseconcern.org This was designed as a new public information tool dedicated to the issue of neighbour noise. A dedicated hotline was also set up during the campaign period to deal with any queries from the public and an accompanying ‘Bothered by Noise’ leaflet was produced by Defra.
There were 7,362 unique visitors to the Noise Concern website during the three week campaign 47% of those that filled in an online questionnaire said that the campaign it would encourage them to discuss the problem with their neighbour
