Noisenuisance.org have launched a new service for sufferers of noise nuisance. They are now able to access a library of information on noise issues and self-help articles online in order to help them with their neighbour noise or nuisance issue.
The resource includes podcasts, video, downloads and a comprehensive pool of Q&As. They aim at helping a small portion of the 500,000 noise complainants each year who go to their local authorities for help.
You may be aware that Encentre have been monitoring food hygiene data from across the UK. We benchmark food authority services in order to identify trends and enable local authorities to prioritise resources. A lot of local authorities work in different ways so we concentrate on outcomes rather than enforcement outputs; this also gives us a much clearer idea of performance for planning purposes.
The data for the 2014-2015 administrative period provided some really interesting research results. We would like to highlight one of the success stories in the 2014-2015 administrative period. This particular story involves a local authority area in England. So, what happened?
Local Authority Spending Cuts - Exploring New Ways of Working
The aim of the course/workshop is to showcase and explore ideas that may enable local authority environmental health practitioners can improve service delivery in an era of diminishing budgets.
During the event we will highlight and share examples of good practice. Featured service areas include food hygiene and neighbour noise, although content will be relevant to all regulatory functions.
