Over the past few weeks, we have been pulling together a variety of case studies on The Noise App, covering different aspects of how this diverse app can be used.

Our first case study features Liverty, a housing association based in the South West of England. Liverty have a housing stock of 35,000 and handle approximately 450 noise complaints each year. Speaking of their use of the app, Julie Bingham, Head of Tenancy Enforcement, said that “The Noise App provides us with greater flexibility at a low cost, it also means we get information as it occurs and we only need to listen to short recordings”.

Steve Morbey, Lead Officer Public Health, said “think about what you can use it for, not what you can’t. For us, it brought immediate benefits.”

Darren Walters, Team Manager Environmental Protection, said that “The Noise App has helped us focus our efforts, enhancing our enforcement activities when needed.
