Noisy neighbour in Bromley fined thousands after repeatedly blasting out music

News Shopper: Noisy neighbour Noisy neighbour

A noisy neighbour in Bromley has been fined thousands of pounds after repeatedly blasting out her music.

Emma Vale, of Rangefield Road, has to pay £1,800, a £180 victim surcharge and more than £1,200 to Bromley Council.

The council’s public protection division prosecuted Vale for a second time following complaints of “very loud music” from residents.

She had previously failed to show up at Bromley Magistrates’ Court on April 9 and failed to respond to the council’s allegations of “noise nuisance” – despite being witnessed leaving her property by the authorities earlier this year.

Miss Vale was served an abatement notice in December 2012, but is said to have continued to ignore warnings to turn the volume down.

She was convicted of causing a noise nuisance in August last year when she was fined £900 and had to fork out £1,464 in cost.

The council also seized equipment at the time using a court warrant.

Head of environmental protection Jim McGowan said: "People who blatantly persist in causing a noise nuisance will be prosecuted.

“These individuals have no regard for their neighbours and seem determined to ignore our warnings. “This thoughtless behaviour will not be tolerated in Bromley."

If it is a council tenant, they should be booted out on to the street. One of the conditions of getting a council house should be that if you behave antisocially to your neighbours, then you're out.

Bromley has no council tenants and hasn't had any for years so it's impossible

That's why I said, "if" they're council. Anyway, they may not be called council in Bromley, but there is still housing associations and housing benefit etc.
I'm talking in general rather than about this specific case. I'm a great believer in laying out strict rules for people who are given things for free. If you're given the generous offer of a free house or housing benefit to assist you, then you live by the rules otherwise it's simply taken away from you for good.

Rangefield Road - isn't that road full of non indigenous people now? Must still be council owned or run then, as a lot of non indigenous people have taken over that road and surrounding roads and lots of non indigenous people I know of have indigenous sounding names - take Doreen lawrence for instance. ...Isn't she of jamaican decent?

Don't forget that all these non indigenous people had to take the name of their slave masters, who were indigenous to this country's indiginous population.

Still got indigenous names though. Nothing to stop them changing by deed poll, So still could be the one responsible for the ASBO and the " I'll do as I like" attitude from Rangefield Road.

Are you sure? All of Bromley's former council housing was sold to Affinity Sutton in 1992 and not one council house built in Bromley since then.
