Nuthall man fined for allowing dogs to cause noise nuisance

29/08/23 - Broxtowe Borough Council have successfully prosecuted a Nuthall man for allowing his dogs to cause severe noise disturbance to local residents. He could now face jail if he breaches a Criminal Behaviour Order (CBO) that has been secured against him.

KARL MUNN, of Kenton Avenue, Nuthall pleaded guilty at Nottingham Magistrates’ Court on 18 August to numerous breaches of a noise Abatement Notice served in October 2021. This followed multiple complaints made to Environmental Health alleging the noise was unreasonable and frequent.  Council officers tried to resolve the matter but warnings given were ignored and therefore a noise Abatement Notice was served.

Mr Munn was fined, ordered to pay a victim surcharge and contribution to the prosecution costs totaling £1,060.  The Court also ordered a Criminal Behaviour Order, which if not adhered to can result in up to five years imprisonment or an unlimited fine.

Leader of the Council, Councillor Milan Radulovic MBE stated “We are delighted that the Court have granted a Criminal Behaviour Order in this case which reflects the harm suffered by members of our community. We will not tolerate those having a negative impact on the health and well-being of residents, businesses, and visitors by causing totally avoidable noise nuisance. The Council takes complaints of noise nuisance seriously and will continue to protect our residents by using our powers where anti-social behaviour exists.”
