Are you having issues with noise?
Torus are now using 'The Noise App', which lets you record audio for up to 30 seconds at a time on your Smartphone, this recording will then be sent instantly to our Safer Estates and Neighbourhood Teams for review.
As well as recording the noise, you can also enter details about the nature of the disturbance. This can then be easily shared with us to support your complaint.
The audio clips are unlikely to be enough on their own to determine if the noise is a statutory nuisance. However, they can be very helpful in deciding your priority level and helping your complaint progress quickly.
IMPORTANT: YOU MUST ALSO CONTACT US DIRECTLY TO LOG AN ASB COMPLAINT TO GO WITH YOUR NOISE REPORTS. USING THE APP ALONE WILL NOT RESULT IN ACTION BEING TAKEN.

Reporting Anti-social Behaviour (ASB) & noise nuisance
If you need to report an instance of ASB it’s important that you provide us with as much information as possible so we can prove that there has been a breach of tenancy agreement or a general disturbance to the community.
Each case is treated on its merits and the officer assigned to your case will discuss an action plan to hopefully resolve matters.
