Areas of Law / Public Law

We received a letter from the council four months ago saying a complaint had been made, supposedly because our dog was causing a noise nuisance. We were told that the complainant would be asked to keep a diary of the alleged barking for a two-week period, and then if necessary electronic monitoring would be installed. We object to being spied on and the assumption that we’re guilty.

The letter you received from the council asks you to check whether your dog is creating the noise. This is by way of information, and is in no way judgmental. Whoever made the complaint must provide evidence and, assuming there have been no further developments, it would appear that the complainant was either unable to do so or the nuisance has stopped.
