Occupier to face court over noise

IT is the occupier of the house, not the musicians, who face the music if police return a second time to a noisy party.

Warwick police received a complaint about a noisy party in Bracker Road at 1.20am yesterday and issued a noise abatement direction that the noise be turned down.

Forty minutes later, police received another report of noise and rendered the musical equipment inoperable when they returned. The occupier was given a notice to appear for disobeying a police direction.

A Warwick police spokesman stressed that once police responded to a noise complaint, it was the occupier of the house who was responsible for ensuring the party adhered to the police direction.

“Failure to adhere results in a court appearance for the person to whom the direction was given,” he said.

The person responsible for turning the noise down is not the DJ.

Police paid tribute to the organisers of a registered party in Schoch Road.

“This party was well catered for and there was no trouble.”
