Noise Report: October 2022

After two torrid summers, July and August (red bars above) saw noise return to something nearer normal. Complaints accelerated in September, as usual at the start of a new year. This continued into October. The following statistics summarise noise reports for 2021-22 (July to June, dark bars).

 

Total student-related incidents = 117 (6 street noise, no address)

So, incidents at an address = 111, from 77 unique addresses

Addresses cited 2 or more times = 19 (25% of 77)

Total parties = 68 (61% of 111 incidents at an address)

Incidents by ward: Cotham 67 (57%), Clifton Down 22 (19%),
Clifton 18 (15%), Others 10 (9%)

Total complaints = 156 (some incidents get 2 or more)

Total 'other' incidents = 69 (where complaints mention recent past incidents not recorded in 117 total)

 

Note: All incidents as reported to this website. Some residents report to university/council only, hence these statistics are a sample.
