FAQ 2146
How can I complain about noise and anti-social behaviour by students in my street?

Should you wish to make a complaint, in the first instance you should contact Environmental Health at Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole Council. If there is the possibility of a Statutory Noise Nuisance, then Environmental Health can monitor and issue Noise Abatement Notices.

You can contact Environmental Health on 01202 451296 (select option 1)  or email environmentalhealth@bcpcouncil.gov.uk.

Should you be experiencing a disturbance late at night, the out of hours service can be contacted on 08000 281870. For urgent issues which may constitute a criminal offence, Dorset Police can be contacted on 101. Such matters will be brought to the University’s attention by Dorset Police and Environmental Health, should it be deemed appropriate. This is part of a continued team approach that BU and the Students’ Union are taking with the Police and the Council.
