The out of hours noise patrol in Brighton and Hove is expected to return from early next month.
The news was given to a meeting of Brighton and Hove City Council in response to a question by the opposition Conservative leader Councillor Geoffrey Theobald.
At the full council meeting on Thursday 24 March Councillor Theobald asked: “In view of the Conservative group amendment that was agreed by budget council to reverse the administration’s proposed £50,000 saving to the noise patrol service, will the chair of the Environment, Transport and Sustainability Committee please confirm what level of service will now be provided to residents?”
Gill Mitchell, the Labour councillor who chairs the Environment, Transport and Sustainability Committee, said: “It is important that the out of hours noise patrol service is reintroduced as soon as possible.
“As a minimum it is expected that a service will be provided along the lines of the historic service of 10pm to 3am Friday and Saturday nights and it is proposed that this will be provided from early April.
“At the same time we are taking this opportunity to review how and when the service is delivered and ensure it meets with current customer need and demand – and risk.
“In addition we are making sure that any review is being done alongside the development of the City Neighbourhood, Community Collaboration and Inspection and Enforcement Programme.”
